We have been supporting and exhibiting at the IRRV national conference for six years now. For the first time this year we decided to submit an entry for the awards in the category of Debt Management.
Our submission was a joint effort with Rotherham MBC. It highlighted a three year project which has now seen approximately £660,000 of unpaid business rates collected in some of the most challenging of circumstances. The awards process turned out to be an intensive one involving a lengthy written submission and onsite interview with representatives from the IRRV.
We were very pleased when we made the shortlist for the award. The results were announced during the excellent IRRV Performance Awards dinner in Telford. On this occasion we were beaten to the top spot. Nonetheless, we are very proud of the work we have been doing with Rotherham, which combines the forward thinking of their revenues team and the business rates expertise of Greenhalgh Kerr.
