About this webinar
Following the tremendous financial pressure Local Authorities faced as a result of COVID-19, a number of Councils are now looking to identify new revenue streams to counterbalance the effect. One key area for consideration is tax base growth – by proactively identifying properties that have never paid tax.
This has become a lot simpler in recent months thanks to new technology which automates the process of finding both domestic and commercial properties in your area which have never been registered on either the rating or council tax banding list.
The technology works by consolidating information from a number of different datasets such as electronic property listings and directories and, using mapping software and cross referencing this against your Councils current rating list or council tax banding list, to identify discrepancies. Presenting the results back in an intuitive online secure portal and available as an annual subscription, quite quickly Councils can see a substantial return on investment, keeping all additional revenue they identify.
Why you should attend?
This webinar provides a brief overview of the NEXUS solution, revealing the type of missing property matches you can expect to find in your Authority and how that information will be presented. It will also show the results that other Local Authority customers are achieving highlighting the financial revenue they have been able to generate.
*** This webinar is primarily for Revenues, Recovery, Income, Collections, Finance, Business Rates and Property staff within UK local authorities and the collections agencies who work on their behalf and Destin Solutions reserve the right to refuse registrations if necessary in order to protect commercial interests. ***
