1.1.D.50 Debt, debtor
Generally, if a person has been paid more PLP or DAPP than was payable to them, the excess amount is a debt to the Commonwealth. If an employer is paid PPL funding amounts (1.1.P.180) and an equivalent amount is not paid as PLP instalments (1.1.I.40), the amount not paid is a debt to the Commonwealth by the employer.
Note: Not all debts are recoverable. Depending on the circumstance, some debts may not be recoverable; they may be waived or written off.
A debtor is a person who owes a debt to the Commonwealth.
