See if you can delay the bankruptcy until 6th April. Once you are made bankrupt your tax rate for the remainder of the financial year is nil.

No point in going bankrupt in March and only getting a few days tax relief!

I really do appreciate all those 'thank you' emails - I'm glad I've been able to help. Apologies if I haven't acknowledged all of them.

You can also ding my gong if you prefer. :)

Hmm, yeah, your tax code is set to NIL, but that's because the OR will want you to hand over your normal tax element of earnings as an IPA (or part of a larger IPA if disposable income)! Better to go BR in March methinks...

Ok so i have a choice, either go back part time 16hours and keep benefits or go back full time, i would rather go back full time, i know they take so much of your earmings, so would i be better off part time or full time, thanks for your replys guys :) just need to get this right.

Yes you do have to take into consideration how much you are going to be earning. If the amount untaxed is lower than the limit allowed by the OR for reasonable living expenses then you will still be OK and have the benefit of having the extra income that would otherwise go in tax.

 

If the untaxed amount is above the OR's limit then you may want to pay the tax. You're going to have to pay something, either to the OR or HMRC.

From my point of view anything paid to the OR goes to the creditors so I would plump for the HMRC. :)

 

You need to do the arithmetic I guess. However much you dislike the thought of money going to DCAs it may be that you personally end up with more in your own pocket if you go that route.

Here's a trivial example -

Assume you are getting £1000 per month and assume for the sake of illustration that the OR's limit for reasonable living expenses is £800.

If you paid no tax then the OR would want £200 per month.

On the other hand if you paid tax [and NI] this might come to £250 per month, leaving you with £750.

Hence you would want to go the nil tax route for as long as possible.

 

Please note this is a trivial example. Perhaps there is an accountant about who can plug some real figures in.

I don't think that's quite right... from Income Payments Agreements and Income Payments Orders

"Applying a 'Nil tax' code

 

If you pay tax under PAYE, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will usually apply a 'nil tax' code to you for the rest of the tax year in which you were declared bankrupt. This means that soon after your bankruptcy, your employer will be told NOT to take any more income tax from your wages for the rest of the tax year. HMRC applies nil tax codes for various reasons, and the new tax code will not tell your employer you are bankrupt. The nil tax code does not mean no tax is due. It just enables HMRC to claim the whole of your unpaid tax for the year of your bankruptcy.

 

There will be extra money in your pay because of the nil tax code. This money will form the basis of an IPA or IPO, even if you have no other real disposable income. A nil tax (or NT) IPA or IPO may be the only amount you have to pay, and the agreement or order will stop when your tax code changes. If you have other real disposable income, the IPA or IPO will reduce when your tax code changes" (my bolding)

 

Here's a trivial example -

Assume you are getting £1000 per month and assume for the sake of illustration that the OR's limit for reasonable living expenses is £800.

If you paid no tax then the OR would want £200 per month.

 

No, the OR would want ~50% of the £200 - see Technical: IEL Reference Guide: WAGES OWED

Thankyou

 

That has made it a lot clearer, no other disposable income, will just be my wages, and luckily no other debts, so all what they take will go towards paying the shortfall of the mortgage, one more question, what happens after the year is up, do they carry on taking money from wages or is it stopped after that year and im free so to speak :)

Np :)

As far as I can gather, if the IPA is only made up of the tax element, then at the end of that tax year (i.e. when your tax code changes back) the OR will probably suspend your IPA - the OR may even take the view that an IPA is no longer appropriate (see "What happens if I miss a payment under my IPA or IPO?" at Income Payments Agreements and Income Payments Orders)

This depends on whether an IPA is made or not. I'm assuming it isn't because the available funds aren't sufficient. You are assuming they are.

We're talking about different circumstances ... :)

 

 

No, the OR would want ~50% of the £200 - see Technical: IEL Reference Guide: WAGES OWED

 

 

I stand corrected - I had overlooked the percentages (brain fade).

 

This makes the arithmetic even more important. My gut feel is that the percentages alter this enough for it to be marginally better off for you go the March route.

I really do appreciate all those 'thank you' emails - I'm glad I've been able to help. Apologies if I haven't acknowledged all of them.

Not at all - the guidance I linked to says that if you pay tax, the amount of tax you would've paid (but won't because of the NIL tax code) will be payable as an IPA whether or not there is any other income that could be assessed for an IPA.

 

Basically, if you pay tax currently, there will be an IPA (for the tax year you're bankrupt in, so a max of 12 months) of at least what your tax would be - see the last bolded para in my quote from the guidance.

 

ISTBC, of course :)

It makes absolutely no difference to you personally when you go BR, the nil tax code is not something you will gain from, all it means is the amount you would have paid in tax will be in your pay and you will have to pass the full [/B]amount on to the OR. (which is what Micheal has said)

For this reason I would go BR in March so you dont have to worry about putting it aside etc.

Also the fees are cheaper whilst you are on benefit.

You are correct in that the shortfall will be the sole responsibility of your ex, for him to deal with as he sees fit - the main thing is you cannot be chased for it after BR.

Use this calculator to work out what your surplus income is likely to be, when working - include any benefits you will get which you can work out on Start Calculation

If you are on benefits solely then it is unlikely that you will have any IPA as you will be living on the minimum.
