Council’s excellent collection performance

An excellent performance by Amber Valley Borough Council in collecting Council Tax and Business Rates, will be praised by the Borough Council’s Cabinet when it meets on 14 January.

Cabinet members will hear that Council Tax Collection last year was 98.8% - a higher rate than any other Derbyshire Authority and he 17th highest nationally.

There are over 55,600 council taxpayers in Amber Valley, the largest Derbyshire District Authority, and almost £10m more council tax is collected than any other Derbyshire District Authority.

Last year 99% of Business Rates were collected by the Council, again the best performance of all Derbyshire Authorities, and the 39th best nationally.

Commenting on this performance, Leader of the Council, Cllr Paul Jones, said: “For a long time our officers have performed strongly in this area and it is very satisfying to see collection rates being maintained at a time when local government budgets are under such pressure. We will continue to place great emphasis on recovering money that is owed to us in the interests of maintaining essential services for everyone in Amber Valley.”
