Deadlines for appealing against the enforcement of claims

You can appeal as long as legal enforcement of the claim has not been concluded.

  • In connection with attachments of earnings, you can appeal against the National Collection Agency's (NCA) decision or actions as long as the deduction period has not expired.

You can also appeal against a decision by us to establish an attachment on these assets in particular, but, in such case, you must appeal within one month of having been informed of the attachment.

Other deadlines for appealing can vary from case to case. We will inform you about them by letter.
