    • As I recall the only thing you tried telling us was based on a quote that you selectively edited by Lord James of Blackheath. You misrepresented it as a statement of fact when it was actually a question which was laughed at by his peers in the House of Lords.  We told you it was garbage, you asked us to prove it and we did.   Remember?
    • you need to realise that for every person that does come to CAG and register and tell their story...there are poss 10'000 that don't but search the interweb whereby threads that are here pop up relating to like issues they are searching upon.   Most CAG siteteam and many other registered Caggers give advice that bears this in mind and post information which not only informs the starter of a thread upon what to do, but also takes into consideration the readers from the interweb that also read the relevant advice given that might not be brave enough to register and fess up.   to that end, there is very little alternative than to appear to give 'grief' [you deserve it - tough] to a cagger should certain previous advice not have been followed.....yours is a very classic case of such. hey I've found a backdoor CCJ.   to put it bluntly, had you have followed such previous advice, you most certainly would not be in the situation you are in here now.. .so by example, not giving you grief, for future readers...………..   ...never ever move without informing a debt owner of a move of address on any consumer debt that you last used or paid within the last say 7yrs. your credit file is a major key to ascertaining that information.... .but don't just read this advice come to the consumeractiongroup.co.uk website and let us help.   lecture over... what can you do..or more importantly....what can a claimant do now they have a default forthwith judgement against you. well we can't guess.... they might simply ignore it as 1000's of people with CCJ's find out..but it becomes an issue should you wish to say get a mortgage, remortgage or further credit.   i'm not going to enter into any of that here...that's for the reader to start a thread here and seek advice on their individual situation specific to them as you have done....   so...  bearing the all of the above in mind...over to you with regard to this backdoor CCJ.   as for the other debts that you didn't action before...go read your old thread and action what appropriate advice is given there for each type of debt that has been given should you wish to avoid any further backdoor CCJ's.   dx                    
    • hello my very good helpful friend. I am afraid to say that i did not. As i did not realise the relevance of it.   Should i be doing this right now of anyone on my credit file ?   Plz don't give me grief if u have already advised me...   do i do the ccs request now to everybody in that thread ?    
    • aha busted and stupid ...no wonder you've got mixed information here. never trust anything they say ..they have a very bad reputation for stating the truth.   now can you go get your credit file please..   there are cases whereby a council on historic CTAX debts do go for a county court CCJ, but a liability order from a magistrates court has far more clout legally than a county court CCJ and i've never heard of a court sending a bailiff out for 'multiple' CCJ collection.   me thinks he is pulling the wool here a bit and has looked at your credit file and seen CCJ's too so thought he'd chance his arm and use those as further leverage.   don't worry about the sat visit simply ignore do not answer the door if he appears. your task is too gather data at present.   credit file please..

I currently work in education and get paid pro-rata, even though I work term-time only.



I am looking for similar work closer to home to cut out travelling costs and if I am successful would be due to start in September 2017.


In a regular job I would give a month's notice and go straight to a new job in September,

because of working in education my last physical day at work would be mid July,

I would be paid for at the end of July

and I would expect any holiday pay owing etc and a P45 at the end of August.


Is this correct, or in the HMRC's eyes do I become unemployed end of July and lose my tax credits for the summer weeks and have to renew a claim in September for tax credits.



Tried ringing the tax credits but they were a bit unhelpful,

with not really understanding the nature of term time working etc.


I'm worried that I could be with no tax credits over the summer,

and a new claim would mean I go on Universal Credit.


Please advise

Term time workers are considered to be working all year round but the guidance is unclear what to do when they stop working. I just trawled through the technical manual and there actually doesn't appear to be anything specific about this. Probably because not every employer will do the same thing.


So I believe it's going to come down to what is on your P45. If you employer considers you as an employee until end of August or whatever as normal, then submits the P45, as long as you start your new job within 7 days of the P45 "end date" (and you give hmrc all the details in time) your claim will continue. If your employer puts it through now with an end date of now, your claim ends.

Thank you for your reply, I can't find an answer anywhere on line even though I've spent most of the day trawling through countless sites. I think I might need to go and make an appointment with jobcentre locally and get some answers before I actually change jobs. It has been mentioned that I would only need to inform tax credits that my hours of work have changed from 30 to 20, and due to higher wage it will not make much difference to annual pay. I'm going around in circles and I need someone to say it as it is, enabling me to make informed decisions when and if the time arises. Thank you
