The IRRV Scottish Association held a highly successful half day seminar and lunch at the Municipal Chambers, Falkirk, on Tuesday 28th February 2017. We were grateful that this year’s AGM was kindly again being sponsored by Alex M Adamson LLP.
Over 100 attended and there were informative presentations as follows :
- Revaluation 2017 – the issues - Alasdair MacTaggart, President, Scottish Assessors’ Association and Assessor & Electoral Registration Officer for Renfrewshire.
- Transforming Revenues and Benefits Services – Les Robertson, IRRV Education Liaison Officer for Scotland and Head of Revenue and Commercial Services, Fife Council.
- Collection Performance Indicators – are they still relevant? – Jim McCafferty, Immediate Past President, Institute of Revenues, Rating & Valuation and Consultant
Kevin Fraser was elected IRRV Scottish Association President, succeeding Joan Hewton, who has served two highly successful years. Some photographs from the AGM, including the presentation to successful students are below as are the presentations for download.
IRRV Revenues & Benefits Certificate and Diploma Qualifications 2016-17
We are delighted to advise Scottish local authorities about arrangements for provision of the Diploma & Certificate qualifications in Scotland, provided by the Institute of Revenues, Rating & Valuation.
As you may be aware, IRRV provides a Certificate qualification course aimed at staff in Revenues and Benefits administration in Scottish local authorities. It is also very relevant to other staff – for example Housing Association staff wishing to build an in-depth knowledge of Housing Benefit, or recovery agents’ staff wishing to build an in-depth knowledge of Council Tax and NDR.
