Purpose

This seminar will provide delegates with a greater insight into what other local authorities do to pursue debtors that attempt to evade payment.

It will also consider the cost of such actions (actual costs and opportunity costs) providing some ‘food for thought’ in the respect of council policies, current performance, and ‘spend to save’ initiatives.

Learning outcomes

By attending this course you will be provided with:

·        An appreciation of the importance of having in place effective policies, procedures and working practices;

·        An understanding of how to use the powers and enforcement remedies available in the process.

·        The knowledge to be able to pursue debts without referring cases to the Council’s Legal Department;

·        An understanding of the potential costs and whether it is cost effective not to pursue a debt further.

Who will benefit

All those who work or manage debt collection of

·        Corporate Debts;

·        Local Taxation;

·        Sundry Debts;

·        Overpaid Housing Benefits; and
