CTLS at Institute of Money Advisers Conference
CTLS at Institute of Money Advisers Conference 15-16 May 2017
Alan Murdie, director of CTLS, hosted a workshop ‘Cuts, Computers and Council Tax: Responding to a Changing Environment’ for delegates attending the Institute of Money Advisers Annual Conference held at Bristol over 15-16th May 2017. The conference brought together over two hundred professionals working in money advice and the wider advice and financial sectors, on the theme of Quality and Sustainability in Money Advice.
The workshop looked at the impact that increased computerisation has had upon the recovery of local taxes and individual taxpayers, its links with the growth in debt and at ways in which advice organisations can best respond to rising levels of default. Reflecting concerns over the increasing numbers of people seeking wider financial advice, partly as a result of more severe enforcement measures, the Conference also announced the launch of a public campaign concerning imprisonment for council tax debts and the need for local authorities to pursue other more sustainable remedies.
