The amount that can be taken from your wages in a Scottish wage arrestment to pay towards the debt depends on how often and how much you’re paid. Whether you get paid monthly, weekly, or four-weekly, any deductions are made from your net income (after tax).
There is a minimum amount of earnings exempted before a percentage is deducted and sent to the creditor.
As 6 April 2022, this minimum amount is:
- £566.51 per month
- £130.73 per week
- £18.63 per day
