Executive considered a report of the Portfolio Holder – Finance which proposed the write-off of debts in respect of Business Rates, Council Tax, Housing Rents, Overpaid Housing Benefits and Sundry Debtors.


The Section 151 Officer explained the levels of the debts to be written-off.


Moved by Councillor Clive Moesby and seconded by Councillor Duncan McGregor

RESOLVED that Executive agreed to write-off the amounts set out in paragraph 2.1 (£64,180) and individually detailed in Appendix 1.


(Assistant Director of Finance and Resources)



Given that all available options to recover this debt had been explored, it was important that the Council recognised the position and approved the write-off of the uncollectable debt.



Any alternative options were outlined in the report.
