    NT Tax Code - What are the Criteria Applied ? 6th Oct 17 at 1:54 PM
    In the Government Guidelines it states that you will be issued with an NT Code and any tax payable or refunds due will go to the OR for the remainder of the Tax Year you go Bankrupt.

    However in my Interview I was told the OR would not be seeking to implement this measure.

    I am earning a low wage and paying only about an average of £30 to £40 month in Tax. As I understand it to set up an IPA for NT purposes only attracts a charge of £150 which is supposed to come out of the first payment - "Houston we have a problem"

    Can someone tell me is the "NT measure" as the discretion of the OR and if so are there any guidance figures for when it becomes practical. In other words how much tax do you have to be paying per month before this is likely to be enacted?

    The OR does have discretion and so whether you get an NT tax IPA varies across the country. With limited staff time to administer the code coupled with low financial benefit is the most likely reason not to issue one.
    Some ORs, however, seem to do an NT IPA in every possible case.
    In any event it should not have any overall affect upon you.

    It seems strange to me that there is not a standard trigger figure to invoke a NT IPA across England and Wales.

    What's the highest tax per month you have seen go through without attracting one ?
