I know it is my responsibility but my dad told me it was the same as Child benefit and you could earn £50,000 . I want to minimise the chance of a prosecution , and want to put myself in a position where they may choose the civil route I can pay it back in full.I hade written a letter saying that we have filed in the 2 previous years and realise now that we should have included other income I have supplied figures of the other income in the letter 2012/ 2013 being £9400 and 2014/ 2015
£9780. I have informed them that we can pay back any overpayments on demand and also any penalties, would you put in about yhe penalties, will this reduce the likelihood of prosecutions
