Scotland - Introduction to NDR

  • An online training workshop over two mornings

    Wednesday 6 November & Thursday 7 November 2024

    Our course is suitable for both new or inexperienced staff wishing an introduction to the subject but are also highly useful for staff with greater local government experience but who wish a refresher on recent developments in Non Domestic Rates.  

    This course is always extremely well-attended and well-received and we have had further interest from a number of authorities and valuation staff requesting that we run another day like this on NDR. This fully updated course includes an overview of the recent legislative changes affecting NDR.

    Workshop coverage
    This course gives delegates an invaluable introduction or refresher to the administration of NDR in Scotland.   It will be of interest to local authority staff and others, such as Sheriff Officers’ staff and recovery agents.
