bonus after discharge from bankruptcy
« on: Sep 09, 2007, 08:55:34 PM »
i am due for a large bonus from work, but i am thinking of asking my employer to delay the payment until after the discharge in a few months time, so i don't have to hand it over.

is this a good idea?

Don't think that would work, Mike. You see the OR will view the work as being carried out during your bankruptcy period, no matter when you are paid for it.

Ok if you can provide proof that the payment was for work done after the discharge. You might have to wait for an even longer period.

My advice is not to pull the wool over the OR's eyes. If they find out you'd no doubt pay for it.

If there is no mention of it in any payslips or other paperwork, who would know when the work was?

I agree with mch. If the employer agrees to withhold a bonus until X date then as long as his pay slip denotes that he received a bonus of £blah after the event then how can anyone tell the difference? As long as the slip didn't mention that it was for a bonus from period A to B then I think mch should be clear.

Comments please?
