COVID-19 revenues recovery strategy support
Across Local Government, the impact and response to the COVID-19 situation has resulted in:
- considerable focus on the disbursement of business grants
- a substantial increase in inbound traffic (voice and correspondence) with significant increase in benefit referrals
- suspension of all enforcement activity.
In many cases, the Revenues teams have supported the response, and indeed many have suspended all activity in relation to the collection of Council Tax and Business Rates.
With a large amount of uncertainty around the impacts of COVID-19 on residents, albeit a likely-unprecedented increase in customer vulnerability, how will this unravel and what is the process to ensure Local Authorities can manage?
