Former Tenant Rent Arrears, Current Tenant Rent Arrears, Council Tax, Non Domestic Rates and Sundry Debtor Write Offs
Meeting: 29/03/2022 - Cabinet (Item 107)
Report of the Strategic Director of Housing and Customer Services
Presented by the Corporate Portfolio Holder
The Corporate Portfolio Holder presented the report.
Councillor N Rushton drew members’ attention to the section of the report which illustrated any write offs under £10,000 and additionally to a paragraph in the report explaining the reasons why some debts are written off. It was noted that it was good accountancy practice to write off debts, however if the authority could recoup debts at a later date, it would endeavour to do so.
It was moved by Councillor N Rushton, seconded by Councillor R Bayliss and
- Non-domestic rates write offs over £10,000 be approved.
- The information contained within the summary report as a true representation of write offs undertaken during 2021/22 to date under delegated powers be approved.
Reason for decision: To comply with proper accounting practices.
