(1)Subsections (2) and (3) apply where—

(a)a relevant sum is to be paid by instalments,

(b)any instalment is not paid on or before the day on which it is due to be paid, and

(2)For the purposes of calculating the unpaid amount for—

(a)that warning notice, and

(b)any penalty notice given in respect of that warning notice,

any remaining instalments (whether or not yet due) are to be treated as having been due on the same day as the unpaid instalment.

(b)interest on those amounts calculated in accordance with section 37B(1)(b) or 37C(1)(b) (and subsection (2)).

(5)The provisions of this Part apply where a financial award consists of two or more sums (whether or not any of them is a costs sum) which are required to be paid at different times as if—

(a)it were a relevant sum to be paid by instalments, and

(b)those sums were the instalments.

(6)Where a payment by an employer is made, or purported to be made, in respect of a relevant sum, an enforcement officer may determine whether, and to what extent, the payment is to be treated as being—
