Enfield Council top in London!

Published Friday, 20 September 2013

Enfield Council has been shortlisted for a prestigious award (given by the Institute of Revenues Rating and Valuation – IRRV) for ‘Excellence in Innovation – IT.

After joining up with Experian, a major credit reference agency, to target high value council tax arrears cases, the council was shown to be the top council tax collector for arrears in London and the fourth highest in England in the last financial year.

The Council was highlighted for its:

- excellent working partnership with Experian on collecting council tax arrears
- efficient work at targeting enforcement action on council tax payers who have the means to pay council tax but who fail to do so
- joint working with police and other agencies to collect unpaid council tax

The winner will be announced on the 3rd October in London.

Cllr Andrew Stafford, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Finance and Property said “Enfield Council has a rising caseload so when it comes to collecting unpaid council tax, and in these times when every penny counts, it is important we collect as much money owed to the council as possible.

“Enfield Council is the top council tax collector for arrears in London and the fourth most efficient in England. This is great news.

“I hope we win this important award as this will be further confirmation from external partners of council excellence in this field.”
