Compensation Orders

Has a bailiff visited you to collect a Compensation Order payment? This guide can help.


Compensation orders issued by a court require you to pay compensation to a victim of a crime that you committed.  A compensation order can either be part of an overall sentence or a sentence in itself. Compensation Orders are considered priority debts.

If you do not pay the amount required of you it is possible for a bailiff or a high court enforcement officer to be used to recover the amounts needed to pay the compensation order.
