Council Tax and business rates recovery procedure policy

Attachment of members allowances

This process is available in respect of an elected member of any billing authority or any major precepting authority (with the exception of the City of London and the Metropolitan Police) against whom a liability order has been granted.

It is not limited to members of the billing authority or major precepting authorities whose council tax is under collection.

An attachment order is directed to the local authority of which the debtor is a member and operates as an instruction to the authority to make a deduction from attachable allowances payable to the debtor.
