IRRV Forums

The IRRV Forum Service offers a platform for discussion

The Forum Subscription year runs from 1st January until 31st December. Organisations can join at any time of the year on payment of a pro-rata subscription. It is aimed at those involved in (or with an interest in) Business Rates, Council Tax, Sundry Debts and Welfare Benefits. Forum membership is on a corporate rather than individual basis and is open to all public bodies, local authorities and private companies, irrespective of membership / involvement in other Institute activities. The IRRV Forum Service enables members to network with hundreds of practitioners working within the above areas of the profession. At a time when budgets are being cut, one cannot afford not to be an IRRV Forum Service member. Membership includes:

  • Quarterly regional meetings with a technical update delivered by our contracted technical expert who is supported at each meeting by guest speakers (i.e. representatives from DCLG, DWP and MOJ) focussing on topical issues
  • Unlimited user licence to the Forum Portal where forum members can book, view and download agendas, maps, minutes and presentations • Discounts at all major conferences / professional meetings / training courses run by the Institute together with price reductions on our electronic products and consultancy
  • A weekly alert that brings to the attention of members all the latest developments in the profession
  • Unrestricted access to the enhanced Technical Enquiry Service, which includes a Q&A feature as well as a search facility
  • Webinars, which give Forum members unlimited attendance (at no cost) so all employees can benefit without having to leave the office
  • Free access to ‘Jobs Online’, which offers you unrivalled access to a targeted pool of professionals


  • Local Authorities and not for Profit Organisations - £1,200.00
  • Other Organisations – includes membership of more than one region - Price on application
