Hi, I hope someone can help me

 

Over the years I have got into a lot of debt with council tax mainly because I have moved from job to job, anyway I have a 0 hour contract and usually earn around £350 a week ( when I work) I can then go 2 weeks without any work so I always budget my money to last me in case of no income on future weeks.

The council have just placed 2 attachment of earnings on my wages, for CT due from 2006!, which I think allows them to take between 12 and 17 % of my earnings for each order, this will leave me struggling financially as my rent is £130 p.w so I always make sure I keep 2 weeks payments out of 1 weeks wages incase I dont get any work.

 

I am really worried as I wont be able to survive, they also sent 5 other summons I have to bailiffs so I have 5 letters from them also demanding payments of over £2000, I dont know how they expect me to pay them as well as taking money from my wages.

 

I am seriously considering leaving my 0 hour contract job and signing on until I come to an arrangement with them,

 

I really need help

(2) Where an employer is or would, but for this paragraph, be obliged to comply at any time with an attachment of earnings order made under this Part and an order made under the Attachment of Earnings Act 1971 (“the 1971 Act”)(4) or the Child Support Act 1991 (“the 1991 Act”)(5)—

 

(a)if the order made under the 1971 Act or, as the case may be, the 1991 Act was made first, whilst it is in force he shall comply only with the order made under the 1971 Act or, as the case may be, the 1991 Act, or

(b)if the attachment of earnings order made under this Part was made first, whilst it is in force the attachable earnings for the purposes of Schedule 3 to the 1971 Act are to be treated as such of the attachable earnings mentioned in paragraph 3 of that Schedule(6) as remain after deduction of the amount to be deducted under the order made under this Part.

Hi Andy

 

This regulation was ammended and now they can run two AOEs t the same time unfortunately.

 

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1992/3008/regulation/17/made

 

 

Priority as between orders

 

17. For regulation 42 and, accordingly, for that regulation as set out in Schedule 3, there is substituted the following—

 

“Priority as between orders

 

42.—(1) Where an employer would, but for this paragraph, be obliged to make deductions on any pay-day under two or more attachment of earnings orders, he shall—

 

(a)deal with the orders according to the respective dates on which they were made, disregarding any later order until an earlier one has been dealt with; and

 

(b)deal with any later order as if the earnings to which it relates were the residue of the debtor’s earnings after the making of any deduction to comply with any earlier order.

 

(2) Subject to paragraph (3), where an employer would, but for this paragraph, be obliged to comply with one or more attachment of earnings order and with one or more deduction order, he shall deal with the orders according to the respective dates on which they were made in like manner as under paragraph (1).

Hi

Yes the earlier version which only lasted 6 months made it impossible to place a second AOE until the first expired it is section (b )which is important

(b)deal with any later order as if the earnings to which it relates were the residue of the debtor’s earnings after the making of any deduction to comply with any earlier order.

 

Section a refers to the fact that both cannot be proceeds together compounded.

 

This guidance was issued to all authorities by the moj#

 

http://www.bolton.gov.uk/sites/DocumentCentre/Documents/Council%20Tax%20Attachments%20of%20Earnings%20Orders%20(AEOs)%20-%20Guidance%20for%20Employers.pdf page 6

 

(a) If the is already a CTAEO in place, the new CTAEO is still applied, in date sequence, with the later

order being applied to the residue of the earnings. However, if there are already two or more CTAEOs

in payment, then no further CTAEO can be actioned and the Local Authority should be notified

accordingly

I have heard that it is to a degree concessionary, in that you can ask that they are applied in order. Unfortunately nowadays LAs are trying to get people in arrears back into a situation where they are paying the bill as it falls due, rather than a year in arrears, so they tend to want to try and make up the time on the second order.

 

To me they should use the continued arrears as an indication that the debtor is struggling to pay and re examine their circumstances.

The other orders are from around 2010, 2012 and 2014 I think, going to phone bailiffs tomorrow and tell them I cant even contemplate paying them at the moment

Yes indeed, have you worked out exactly what your deductions will be , or is it impossible because you do not know the amount of payment ?

 

The net earnings is worked on a daily basis, and the second LO is deducted on a second figure which represents what is left on you daily net minus the first f your AOE payments, so it may not be as bad as you think.

 

The method of calculation is here, section 38(8)

 

http://www.bolton.gov.uk/sites/DocumentCentre/Documents/Council%20Tax%20Attachments%20of%20Earnings%20Orders%20(AEOs)%20-%20Guidance%20for%20Employers.pdf

 

If you have problems with the method give us a shout.

Milly,

 

Before making any decisions you need to know how much will be deducted from your wages for the two attachments of earnings orders that have been served on your employer. Once you have reviewed those figures you will be in a better position to work out your finances.

 

In the first instance, a maximum of two attachments can run at the same time. Another attachment may only be made when one of the others has been paid in full.

 

I have calculated that with your salary being £350 per week, the attachment of earnings deductions should be as follows:

 

The first deduction will be £42.00 per week

The second deduction will be £36.95 per week

 

Total weekly deductions will be £78.95 per week.

 

The above deductions are based upon a take home pay of £350 per week. Could you post back to let us know whether the figure that you have quoted of £350 per week is before tax and NI or after tax and NI have been deducted.

Molly have you checked to see if you are entitled to any benefits top up at all?

 

It may pay you to look into this. As it appears you may be struggling financially.

 

Have you informed your LA of this?

I believe the OP is on irregular payments, so if for instance there is 10 days between payment dates and the OP gets 350 after the ten days, they will pay the equivalent of £29. 4 (weekly)off the first bil, this i presume is to reflect that the customer will have to live for an extra thee days with the same amount of earnings.

 

The schedule C is used for the calculation

MM.

 

The poster is extremely worried and has even said that she cannot sleep because of her concerns that the attachment of earnings could be taken at a rate of between 12% and 17% of her income and this could affect her ability to pay her rent.

 

She posted that her income is £350 per week and using this information, I have been able to provide her with the amounts for each deduction. Without her providing this information, this calculation would not have been possible.

 

Also, as a new poster with less than 30 posts she cannot either send or reply to private messages.

 

PS: As mentioned above, I think that her weekly earnings (of £350) may well be before tax and national insurance (in other words gross salary). If so, then my calculation is wrong, and her actual deductions will be lower. It would therefore assist greatly if she could post back with her take home figure and I can then provide more accurate figure for her.

Just to add

 

In addition you will need the period between payments if it is not 7 days.

Thanks for the replies, Bailiff advice, my payments are usually around 350, I have not been taxed at all because I have not earned enough but I think tax will start April, the figure is after NI, I get paid weekly......

 

I am more worried about my rent as I am on a suspended warrant after getting into difficulty with the last zero hour contract I had, I am at my wits end now, I cant afford to pay that each week, my life is complicated but I dont want to put too much on the forum about my circumstances, I am not entitled to any benefits

Millie you need to take into consideration the period between payments. For instance if the period is two weeks the payment due for the first order will only be £17.50 instead of £42 if it is three weeks it will be £10.50. If you are not paying tax i am guessing that the £350 is not a weekly payment.

It may be that you are not liable for a deduction at all.

 

I understand your reluctance to put information on here, but if you ring your LA I am sure they will do the calculation for you and tell you exactly where you stand.
