Enforcement changes - Association meeting, Tuesday 8 April 2014

The West Midlands Association is hosting an event on 8 April 2014 at Coventry City Council - a session not to be missed!

We have two excellent speakers who will be able to give you the local authority point of view of and that of enforcement agents on the changes coming into force this April.

Janice Evans started work in revenues in 1974 and is currently Head of Revenues at Coventry City Council. She is an active member of the Association and lectures on behalf of the IRRV on council tax.

Paul Sharpe is a certificated bailiff and a director of Equita bailiffs. He is an active member of the Civil Enforcement Association (CIVEA, formerly the Enforcement Services Association) and regularly assists the IRRV, giving talks on enforcement matters at the Collection and Enforcement Conference and Annual Conference.   

Are you ready for the biggest changes to enforcement for over 300 years?

  • Do you know what is expected of local authorities?

  • Do you know what is expected of your enforcement agents?

  • Do you know the Ministry of Justice’s view?

If like many of us you are not sure of the answers to these questions, then book your place on this event - but spaces are limited, so book now by e-mailing us at irrvwma@googlemail.com!
