Attachment of Earnings Order

The Council can order your employer to recover the amount direct from your wages or salary and pay it straight to the Council. The amount will be a set proportion of your pay after certain other deductions (such as Income Tax and National Insurance). Your employer may also deduct a further £1 towards his costs in making each deduction and sending it to the Council. The maximum number of orders that can be enforced in respect of Council Tax at any one time is two. These should be applied in order of the age of the Liability Order. If an Attachment of Earnings Order is served you will be sent a copy and this will include a table showing the amounts which can be deducted.
