Welcome to Fines, Reparation and Civil Debt

Welcome to Fines, Reparation and Civil Debt

The Collections Unit of the Ministry of Justice is responsible for the collection and enforcement of fines, including Court-imposed fines, lodged infringements and reparation.  They also provide enforcement services for unpaid civil judgements/orders at a creditor's request.



A fine can be an unpaid infringement fine that has been filed in court for collection or an amount of money a person has been ordered to pay as penalty for a criminal offence


A Judge can order an offender to pay someone money if they have suffered emotional harm or had property lost as a result of a crime.  This is known as reparation.

Civil debt

When a claim is made in a tribunal hearing or civil court case an order of payment may be made for one person (the debtor) to pay the other person (the creditor)

Offender levy

A new offender levy has been introduced that will be used to fund a range of new services for victims of serious crime.
