How to pay your outstanding debt

Step 1: Contact the High Court Enforcement Officers’ company on the number provided on the Notice of Enforcement.

Step 2: Make payment in full before the payment deadline shown on the notice is reached.

You will typically be able to pay by bank transfer, credit card or cash. You should never pay a company or an amount that is not specified on the Notice of Enforcement, and you should never pay anything without having first seen a Notice of Enforcement.

I can’t afford to pay the debt immediately

You should speak with the High Court Enforcement Officer or their visiting agent to try to reach a mutually acceptable payment proposal to repay your outstanding debt.

This will be based on an income and expenditure form. The High Court Enforcement Agent or their visiting agent will make a proposal to the person or organisation you owe the money to (creditor), who will also need to agree to the payments.

Ultimately, it may be necessary for the High Court Enforcement Agent or their visiting agent to remove and sell your goods to cover the outstanding debt. This will always be a last resort.

High Court enforcement activity is being undertaken in an appropriate, flexible and sensitive manner. Read more about High Court enforcement and Covid-19 here.
