    Income Change?

    Income Change? 14th Mar 17 at 4:05 PM
    Hi All,

    Advice please. :-)

    I went bankrupt July last year with no IVA or restrictions order. I have an offer of temporary work which starts exactly two weeks before auto discharge. The chances are I won't see any money until after discharge though it is just possible the first payment will come through to my account before.

    Do I need to declare this if it does? Or if it doesn't? Am I right that I have 21 days to declare a change in income? That would put me well past auto discharge. Obviously, for the sake of two weeks (particularly as it is only a month of work) I don't want to have to find myself with an IVA, but *and I want to make this clear* I do want to do the right thing having gone through all of the guilt we all feel about finding ourselves where we are.

    Any thoughts welcome.

    • 14th Mar 17, 5:33 PM are safe!! you have to notify of any changes within 21 days, so until you have been paid have no change.
    Good luck

    I agree with luvchocolate - you are obliged to the tell the OR within 21 days of actually receiving the new income, which in your case is after AD so no problem.
