star this property answer text <p>We are not able to provide information on the proportion of the original fines and victim surcharge that remains outstanding for without incurring disproportionate cost. In order to extract this information we would need to conduct a manual search of all current financial penalty accounts within our fines database. Figures for the total amount of outstanding fines are published and can be found here</p><p> </p><ul><li><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/727387/HMCTS_Trust_Statement_2017-18_v16_web.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/727387/HMCTS_Trust_Statement_2017-18_v16_web.pdf</a></li></ul><p> </p><p> </p><p>This Government takes recovery and enforcement of financial impositions very seriously and remains committed to finding new ways to ensure impositions are paid and clamping down on fine defaulters is a continued priority nationwide. The courts will do everything within their powers to trace those who do not pay. Money can be deducted from an offender's earnings or from benefits if they are unemployed. Other ‘upfront’ compliance actions include, increased use of telephone and text message chasing and use of tracing tools. Warrants can be issued instructing approved enforcement agents to seize and sell goods belonging to the offender. Ultimately an offender can be imprisoned for non-payment of their fine.</p><p> </p><p>Targeted initiatives to improve enforcement of financial penalties include the recent historic debt project. This project which commenced in September 2016 resulted in the re-working of accounts which had previously been administratively cancelled. As of November 2018, £34.3 million has been collected as a result of this project. Lessons learnt from the Project have been incorporated into business as usual processes within NCES.</p>

Overall, we are scheduled to spend up to £30 million with them on the contract which was signed in July 2017, and runs for two years, with an option for a one-year extension. It should be noted that this is a strategic partnership contract that replaced several individual contracts and as such gives us access to specialist skills across the change spectrum.</p><p> </p><p>The breakdown of the spend across the financial years can be shown in the table below.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>17/18 FY Spend</p></td><td><p>£10,418,186.08</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>18/19 FY Forecast spend</p></td><td><p>£14,808,420.77</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Remaining Contract Cover</p></td><td><p>£4,773,393.15</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Total</p></td><td><p>£30,000,000.00</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p> more like this
