17th May 2017

Agents will no doubt be pleased to have got past the 15th May deadline. However, this year that is not the end of it as claimants can still make changes without penalty up to midnight on 31st May.

To make those amendments, if it was an online application, a new form will need to be created and submitted with the change. An email should be sent in alongside this, explaining that this is a change to the original application, with the heading “Amendments to BPS 2107 application”. For paper applications, a continuation sheet will need to be used with a covering letter.

Further information on this and the type of amendments that can be made can be found on the Government website, or please speak to your BPS adviser.
