Proposed changes to earnings arrestment tables

The Minister for Public Finance, Planning and Community Wealth has written to the Economy and Fair Work Committee to outline his plans to bring forward proposals to uprate the earnings arrestment tables from 6 April 2023.

These tables were last uprated in April 2022 and are normally uprated every three years.

However, given the current rate of inflation and current cost crisis, the Scottish Government is keen to conduct a further uprating of the tables now to provide some additional financial resilience to those subject to an earnings arrestment.

More information can be found in the Earnings Arrestment letter which is available on the Scottish Parliament’s website.
