Upcoming Events

  • Re-assessing Your Funding Resilience Post Covid-19

    These webinars will cover the short and longer term impact of COVID-19 on your major sources of income, including your council taxbase growth, council tax collection rates and arrears and collection fund balances; business rates growth, checks, challenges and appeals and retail risk.

    Also covered will be the specific impact of assumptions made in drafting NNDR3 returns for 2020/21 and the potential implications for funding from business rates – how resilient will the funding of business rates be after COVID-19?
