What happens if I don't pay?
If you do not pay or make a payment arrangement by the due date, the Court can take enforcement action against you to collect the outstanding amount. The Court can:
- Make compulsory deductions from your wages, benefit or bank account.
- Seize and sell your property
- Stop you from travelling overseas
- Arrest you
If any of the above enforcement actions are started, the Court adds an enforcement fee to each fine being enforced. From 1 July 2013 this fee is $102.
If you are having trouble making your payments you should call us on 0800 4 FINES to discuss your situation. Don’t wait for the Court to come to you.
