How much of my wages can be taken?

Deductions via Earnings Arrestment

There are restrictions on how much money can be deducted from your wages, including additional procedures that outline what will happen if more than one creditor attempts to arrest your wages.

The amount taken from your wages will ultimately depend on how much you earn. Any payments for commission, bonus, or overtime will also be considered as part of your wages.

If your wages have already been subject to an earnings arrestment you may want to consider a debt solution which often will remove the wage arrestment.

Debt solutions you may wish to consider include:

  • Debt Arrangement Scheme
  • Trust Deed
