IRRV in Scotland is pleased to announce this important workshop that will cover subsidy and maximising local authority income training for benefits and revenues managers. Please note revised date of 3rd December 2018.

It will be delivered for the IRRV by John Giblin in partnership with Anne Cairns from Audit Scotland.

With DWP cutting the HB administration grant year on year, and debt growing as a result of spiralling overpayments caused by DWP’s FERIS and the various RTI schemes, there has never been a better time to look at how we might manage risks to our revenue streams and improve our cash-flow from better Housing Benefit debt collection.

Course background

 Legitimate revenue maximisation
 The range of subsidy penalties and the risk they pose to revenue streams

 How to decide and take effective remedial action to manage the risk of subsidy penalties

 How to maximise recovery of overpaid benefit to optimise your cash flow and compensate for the associated loss of subsidy

Many of you will have attended John’s workshops before. Over the last 10 years he has delivered more than 80 workshops for IRRV and more than 95% of the delegates have rated them as very good or excellent.

For this particular workshop John will be joined by Anne Cairns from Audit Scotland. Anne will present on how best to prepare for and manage the annual Housing Benefit subsidy audit.

There will be discussion around a case-study highlighting how one particular council massively improved its performance in this area.

There will also be facilitated discussion around how to maximise overpayment recovery, particularly around the opportunities presented by the new Employer Trace data sharing arrangements with HMRC.

Finally, there will be some syndicate work to discuss how and when the learning from the day can be introduced back at the office.

The seminar represents excellent value for money, with seminar fees starting at only £145 + VAT. This includes lunch, refreshments, and training materials.

As places are limited, early booking is recommended. The IRRV regrets that, under normal circumstances, delegate fees cannot be refunded. However, delegate substitutions may be made at no cost at any time prior to the Seminar, subject to these being notified to the Institute.

SPECIAL OFFER 

Every fourth place from the same organisation booked for this course (and made in the same booking) is entirely free of charge. Please note that, due to the demand for places, this offer applies only to the course detailed in this brochure.
