Decision details

Joint ARP Debt Management and Recovery Policy (Agenda Item 11)

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To create a Joint ARP Debt Management and Recovery policy reflecting practices that have been adopted in this area as a result of Shared Services across the Anglia Revenues Partnership and the addition of three new partners

Decision:

That the Policy set out in Appendix A is approved.

Reasons for the decision:

1.     To provide a consistent policy across all seven partners of the ARP.  Continuing with separate policies would not be efficient given the shared provision of Revenues collection across the partnership; and

2.     To update the policy in this area in order to make clear to customers what the recovery process entails.

Alternative options considered:

1.     To approve the Policy set out in Appendix A

2.     Not to approve the Policy set out in Appendix A and to continue using the existing Policy.
