Customer: replied 2 years ago.

can the council take money out of my wages with out a n56 form

Expert:  Remus2004 replied 2 years ago.
Yes, they can get an attachment of earnings
They do have to go to court to do that but not using the N56 form. N56 forms refer to county court actions whereas this is a Magistrates Court matter. But they do send out a similar document.
They seek a liability order and then if you don't pay seek an attachment of earnings.
At either point you can go to court and contest the matter if you have paid.
But, in principle, the council is an emanation of the state like the revenue and they are more aggressive creditors with more powers than most others.
Can I clarify anything for you?
