This course, which covers all aspects relating to assessment, billing and collection, gives delegates an invaluable introduction or refresher to the administration of Council Tax.

It will be of interest to local authority staff, IRRV students and others, such as Sheriff Officers’ staff, the money advice sector and recovery agents.

  • Demand Notices & Instalments

  • Recovery and enforcement
