Time for distraint
You can levy distraint only between sunrise and sunset and not at all on Sundays or public holidays such as Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Christmas Day.
You may levy distress for indirect taxes between the hours of 8:00 am and 8:00 pm on any day of the week or during the period of trading, when a debtor conducts their business partly or wholly outside those hours.
Completion of levy outside time limits
Provided you have begun a distraint before sunset (for direct tax) or 8.00 pm (for indirect tax) you can continue beyond this to completion.
