Deductions from Earnings Arrestment Tables - Amendments
6 April 2016
The Scottish Government attempt to regularly update the tables used for calculating deductions from earnings. The latest changes come into effect on 6 April 2016.
Follow the link below to the new tables.
For clarification, these tables only apply to earnings arrestments executed after 6 April 2016 unless creditors choose to intimate the new tables to employers or employers become aware of and apply the new tables. Unfortunately, as with any variation in these tables an extended period for recovery can be expected.
These tables also impact on the Protected Minimum Balance in bank arrestments. The new Protected Minimum Balance is £494.01.
