An on-line training workshop over two mornings
23 & 24 May 2023
This course takes delegates through the principles of council tax and will equip them to assess council tax charges correctly and to the correct charge payers. 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 covers all changes to Council Tax legislation since its introduction in 1993. As well as having a firm grasp of these changes it is important to be mindful of previous legislation in order to correctly calculate retrospective charges.
The workshop is ideally suited to staff, whether providing front line information or updating liability systems, that are looking to enhance their knowledge of all aspects of Council Tax from how it is set to how it is recovered and all aspects in-between.
The course will be facilitated by Gordon Anderson (IRRV Dip) who has over 30 years’ experience working in Revenues and is a regular tutor for the Scottish IRRV Certificate qualification.
