This workshop is for Heads of Service, Benefit Managers, Team Leaders or other relevant staff. It will be delivered for the IRRV by John Giblin, in partnership with Anne Cairns from Audit Scotland.

With DWP cutting the HB administration grant year on year, and debt growing as a result of spiralling overpayments caused by various DWP’s initiatives, 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.

The workshop will look at :

  • How to best prepare for and manage your Subsidy auditors

  • 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

  • Legitimate revenue maximisation

  • How to maximise recovery of overpaid benefit to optimise your cash flow and compensate for the associated loss of subsidy

  • How to make the most of your resources.

Many of you will have attended John’s workshops before. Over the last 12 years he has delivered more than 100 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, particularly around the opportunities presented by the recent Employer Trace data sharing arrangements with HMRC.

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 9.30am and will conclude around 3.30pm to 3.45pm. A full agenda will be available to registered delegates before the event.

This seminar represents excellent value for money, with seminar fees starting at only £145 + VAT. Every fourth place from the same organisation booked for this workshop (and made in the same booking) is entirely free of charge.
