Thousands of Scots are using this (simple) method to end debt worries!
Across the country, councils are getting ready for their Sheriff Officers to go back to work. It means that very soon, the agents will be back on patrol.
When Scotland first went into lockdown, local authorities had no choice but to put their debt collection tactics on pause.
The government also temporarily halted debt enforcement action.
But over the next few months, lockdown will ease and people will be getting back to work. And that includes Sheriff Officers.
It’s vitally important to have a plan in place for dealing with council tax arrears & other debts such as credit cards, loans & overdrafts before that happens.
The good news? There is a way out. You can stop the calls and letters. There’s support available for people facing Sheriff Officer action that could help you write off up to 81% of what you owe.
Sheriff officers have more power than debt collectors. Don’t be caught out.
If you’re among the estimated two million people in the UK who are now further behind on their council tax payments due to the pandemic, you may be alarmed to find Sheriff Officers contacting you sooner rather than later.
As soon as you stop paying a priority debt such as your council tax, Sheriff Officers become a very real possibility.
Not only is contact from Sheriff Officers incredibly stressful, it can be a deeply embarrassing ordeal for you and your family to go through.
What type of debt concerns you?
No-one should delay dealing with debt
Even before the country went into lockdown, local authority debt collectors were revealed to be some of the most aggressive creditors. Council tax is the country’s fastest growing problem debt – and since the pandemic this has only increased. When this debt is added on to other debts such as overdue bills and rising credit card debts, it’s easy to see how things can spiral out of control.
Councils handed over 2.6 million debts to enforcement officers in 2018/19. Of these, 1.4 million were for council tax debts.
So, if you’re in any level of debt to your local council, you may hear from them sooner than you think.
Many people will not be in a position to pay
Times are tough for so many of us right now. Maybe you’re only on a fraction of your usual salary. If you’re self-employed, you might be waiting for a payment from the Self Employment Support Scheme to come in. Or if you’ve lost work, it’s possible you’ve been hoping the many payment breaks on offer will tide you over until you’re back at work.
But councils have not taken the same measures as private companies. No official guidance has yet been issued from local authorities about council tax breaks. And they won’t hesitate to pursue anyone who’s in debt to them.
If you’re not back at work yet, you could be wondering where you’ll find the money to keep the council tax Sheriff Officers at bay, or how you could possibly catch up with your spiralling debt on a reduced income.
Don’t wait for the Sheriff Officers to show up… deal with your debt today.
The reality is, debt doesn’t go away just because of the current crisis.
Even on a payment break, interest is being added all the time. And all those delayed payments will have to be made eventually.
If you’re worried about existing debts or if your credit cards have become unmanageable and you’ve exhausted your overdrafts… maybe it’s time to stop borrowing and start dealing with the issue.

What type of debt concerns you?
Lower Income, More Bills?
Although many households are dealing with the prospect of reduced income over the next few months, you still have to find a way to keep a roof over your head and food on the table for your family.
Your priorities are making sure everyone’s safe and well, keeping the kids entertained and well-fed.
And with more time spent at home comes the inevitable cost of keeping the heating & lighting on.
It all adds up.
In a recent survey, 62% of people struggling with council debt were threatened with court action, and 51% were threatened with the bailiffs. The numbers increase daily.
You Can’t Delay Dealing With Debt!
At the moment, it feels like life’s been put on pause. The streets have fallen quiet, shops have closed their doors and bars and restaurants are shut. In many ways, time is standing still.
You might even have been offered the option of pressing pause on your everyday outgoings, like your mortgage, council tax or your credit card payments. You may have the choice to extend your overdraft by a few hundred pounds or join the thousands that are already writing of 81% of their debt.
Payment holidays force you to decide: do you do without now, or do you do without later? Because while taking a break from payments can be tempting, this only delays the inevitable.
Unfortunately, you can’t press pause on debt. The only way to stop it is to deal with it and use simple method to reduce debts into one affordable monthly payment.
It’s Time To Take Back Control
When things get back to business as usual, you’ll want to know you’re getting your life on track, once and for all, without the lingering worry of debt. It’s time to:
- Start again, take action and seek professional debt help
- Free yourself and your family from the stresses of debt with a suitable debt solution today
- Write off up to 81% of your debt
- Make a fresh start – with no more hassle from people you owe money to
Isn’t it time you took control and stopped debt in its tracks?
