IRRV outlines its proposal for a phased repayment of council tax and business rates deficits

The IRRV wrote to the Secretaries of State for HCLG and DWP, and to the Chief Secretary at HMT at the end of June, outlining the Institute’s proposal for a phased repayment of council tax and business rates deficits over 3 years, rather than requiring complete repayment of deficits next year.  We were very pleased, therefore, to learn that a similar support model was announced in the government's further package of measures to assist councils, at the beginning of July.  Early outlines on the Government’s proposals shows some fundamental differences from the IRRV model.  Discussions continue, as does the IRRV’s offer of help on developing the detail of a workable scheme.  https://www.irrv.net/documents/weblinks/2020/7/IRRV-Guaranteed-Income-Agreement-Proposal.pdf
