Administration Order

What is an Administration Order?

An Administration order is a debt solution for debts totalling less than £5,000. It is imposed and administered through your county court. Under an administration order you make regular monthly payments to the court who will then distribute the monies to the creditors. The court will also take some of this money towards their own costs for administering the order.

If you would like to ask us any questions about Administration orders you can contact us and we will be happy to advise you.

To qualify for an Administration Order you must

  • Owe less than £5,000 including any interest & charges
  • Owe money to atleast 2 creditors
  • Prove you can afford your repayments - for example, give details of your income
  • Have a county court or High court judgement against you, which you can't pay in full

Administration Orders are recorded on a public register

Your administration order is added to the Register of Judgments, Orders and Fines. It will usually be removed 6 years after the date the order was made. If you repay your debts in full your entry is marked as ‘satisfied’. You can also ask the court for a ‘certificate of satisfaction’.
