Employers—fine collection notices

If you receive a fine collection notice (FCN) for the redirection of earnings, you—as the employer—must deduct the weekly amount as noted on the FCN and pay that to the Registrar of SPER. It is your responsibility to enforce the notice and send monies collected to us by the 7th day of every month. The deductions should start from the next available pay after you receive the FCN.

Use the following forms when dealing with us.


Form   Reason for completion
Return of Payments (Form 3011) (PDF 325 K) Return this form with your monthly payment.
Return of Non-Payment (Form 3010) (PDF 310 K)  Complete this form if you cannot make payments for any reason other than because the employee has ceased work.
Cessation of Employment (Form 3005) (PDF 285 K)  Complete this form if the debtor has never been your employee or has stopped working for your organisation.

The FCN employer guide (PDF 585 K) gives more information about your obligations, including how to calculate the protected earning amount (PEA) and how to make payments. It also contains answers to a number of frequently asked questions.
