Spent various dues (4)


I believe the answer is:


'spent' is the definition.
(I've seen this in other clues)

'various dues' is the wordplay.
'various' is an anagram indicator.
'dues' is an anagram of 'USED'.

(Other definitions for used that I've seen before include "Employed in task, or second-hand" , "like majority of cars?" , "Dues (anag.)" , "Previously owned by another" , "No longer new" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
