Course background

IRRV in Scotland is delighted to announce this important workshop that will cover subsidy and maximising local authority income training for benefits and revenues managers.

For the delivery of this training event, IRRV is once again working in partnership with John Giblin. Many of you will have attended workshops delivered by John either when he was part of DWP, or more recently since he has gone freelance.

This workshop is aimed at Finance Directors, Heads of Service and Benefit Managers. It will also be of interest to team leaders or other relevant staff.

With DWP cutting the Housing Benefit administration grant year on year, and debt growing as a result of spiralling overpayments caused by DWP’s FERIS and the various RTI schemes, there has never been a better time to look at how we might manage risks to our revenue streams and improve our cash-flow from better HB debt collection.

Programme

The workshop will look at 

  • Legitimate revenue maximisation
  • The range of subsidy penalties and the risk they pose to revenue streams.
  • How to decide and take effective remedial action to manage the risk of subsidy penalties
  • How to maximise recovery of overpaid benefit to optimise your cash flow and compensate for the associated loss of subsidy.
     

Many of you will have attended John’s workshops before. Over the last 10 years he has delivered more than 60 workshops for IRRV and more than 95% of the delegates have rated them as very good or excellent.

For this particular workshop John will be joined by Anne Cairns from Audit Scotland. Anne will present on how best to prepare for and manage the annual HB Subsidy audit.

There will be some facilitated discussion around a case-study highlighting how one particular council massively improved its performance in this area.

There will also be some facilitated discussion around how to maximise overpayment recovery.

Finally, there will be some syndicate work to discuss how and when the learning from the day can be introduced back at the office.

The day will begin with coffee and registration from 9.30pm and will conclude around 3.30pm to 3.45pm.

A full agenda will be available to registered delegates before the event.

The seminar represents excellent value for money, with seminar fees starting at only £125 + VAT. This includes lunch, refreshments, and training materials.

As places are limited, early booking is recommended. The IRRV regrets that, under normal circumstances, delegate fees cannot be refunded. However, delegate substitutions may be made at no cost at any time prior to the Seminar, subject to these being notified to the Institute.

SPECIAL OFFER 

Every fourth place from the same organisation booked for the course in this brochure (and made in the same booking) is entirely free of charge. Please note that, due to the demand for places, this offer applies only to the course detailed on the booking form on this brochure and applies to the lowest cost place.
