Ofgem audits: Claiming your withheld payments

This is the third and final part of our Ofgem audit blog series in which we will be looking at what happens when your non-compliance review is complete and claiming for historic periodic support payments. You can read part one in this series here and part two here.

Closure Notice Received

Once the review is complete and the compliance team are satisfied with the evidence provided and any required amendment has been approved, a notice of satisfaction of compliance will be issued.  This will detail any rectification on payments if required and should provide the welcome news that the temporary suspension of periodic support payments will be lifted.

Input data to claim for historic periodic support payments

The whole process of dealing with an audit described in the previous steps can take months to rectify, especially if there is an application amendment to approve to remain compliant and there are often several quarters of historic periodic support payments to claim. These withheld payments can seriously affect the cash flow of your business during this time. It is crucial to submit data as soon as possible following receipt of the closure notice, as payments can take up to six weeks alone to be approved by the payments team.
