Welcome to IRRV Scotland

Scottish AGM and Seminar

IRRV Scotland invites you and colleagues to a complimentary half day seminar and lunch at the Municipal Chambers, Falkirk, on Tuesday 28th February 2017.  We are delighted that this year’s AGM is kindly again being sponsored by Alex M Adamson LLP.

The seminar will cover a number of very topical issues across the fields of valuation, revenues and benefits with excellent speakers : 

  • 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 

The seminar will be chaired by Joan Hewton, President, IRRV Scottish Association.    There will also be ample time for questions and answers and discussion of these vital issues for practitioners – this is an opportunity not to be missed.
The event will start at 10.30am (coffee and rolls on arrival from 10am) and will finish with a presentation to successful IRRV students and the annual general meeting around 12.20pm, followed by a complimentary buffet lunch at 12.30pm.    The event is entirely free of charge and is not limited to IRRV members and students as it will be of benefit to the wider valuation, local authority and related audience.   

Please advise by e-mailing of your attendance and that of any colleagues.

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.
