To seek authorisation for the write off of Bad Debts


Cabinet received a report on the write-off of debts, which were non recoverable due to insolvency action. Members noted that some businesses faced problems following a revised valuation being received from the Valuation Office. The Council would put recovery action in place with a Liability Order being granted by the court. Since the service had come back in-house from November 2018, new arrangements had been put in place to monitor debt.


RESOLVED that the position regarding the debts listed be noted and to authorise these to be written off on the Council’s books.
