Freedom of Information Request

Council Tax Collection

Received: 13 February 2021

Please provide a breakdown of the enforcement costs (fees to debt collection agencies and court costs) incurred in seeking to collect minor amounts (less than £100 or if you use a similar threshold for data aggregation purposes, such similar threshold) of Council Tax under Class C (Long Term Empty) and amounts collected.
Please provide figures for the previous three complete financial years.
The purpose of the request is to analyze the efficacy of instructing debt collection agencies to pursue small amounts instead of adopting a policy as per other councils of waiving small amounts.
