I intend to send off the PACE statement in 27 days time however im just wondering about the whole 6/7 months from the offence that they have before it timesout. Is this time before which they need to hear your case in court or send you a summons?

for example if you receive a summons within 5 months but the date is 8 months after the offence it can no longer timeout or has it then timedout?

Neither, its the time by which they are required to have commenced proceedings. In England, that is done by the laying of an information (an application for summons) with the Magistrates' Court. The summons itself can be issued and served several weeks after the information has been laid. As long as the information is laid within 6 calendar months, the summons would remain valid even if it was served on the defendant beyond the 6 month timeframe.

Would depend on what the offence was. Hopefully, this should explain all..
