Council Tax Debt

Requested on
Mon 24th September, 2012
FOI 2330
Information provided


Please can you detail all Council Tax debt currently outstanding over all financial years. Could you break down by current enforcement stage (ie. Bailiff, Tracing, Pre Write Off)


Enforcement Stage
 Balance outstanding
Attachment of Earnings
Attachment to Benefits
Committal/bankruptcy/Write-off consideration
Pre Write-off


A couple of notes to go with the above data:

·         The figures do not include enforcement costs.

·         The figures show the debt currently at the associated enforcement stage. The debt is ‘fluid’ in the sense that some debt will move from one stage to another before being paid in full.

·         There is further debt at the later stages of recovery which has not yet been allocated to a particular enforcement remedy.
