Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

Telephoning you rejecting a recovery schedule is a typically sloppy approach by HMRC. However, it is clear that by altering your tax code the Department intends to recover the moneys through your wages. They are quite entitled to use this method and it does ease the pain of repayment. I suggest that your monthly deduction of tax from your wages will be of the order of GBP 450 a month.

Recovery of sums over 3K is usually demanded in immediate settlement.

I do hope that my reply has been of assistance.

Does this mean that on top of the £450 they will take additional amounts also on an attachment of earnings?
Expert:  bigduckontax replied 1 year ago.

It would appear not. That 450 I have calculated is from you revised tax coding. It seems unlikely that the Department will apply for a further attachment order for which they would need a Court Order.
