Solutions for Districts & Boroughs

Liberata’s Debt Recovery Solution (Static Debt) speeds up the collection of aged debt. We can collect all types of debt that Districts & Boroughs are responsible for: council tax debt, business rates debt, housing benefit overpayments and sundry debt. Based upon our latest projects, we would expect to collect up to 20% of the most recent debt and recover just over 5% of money owed for over 10 years.

Alongside some of Liberata’s Income Maximisation services, such as Empty Homes, Business Rates and Single Person Discount Reviews, our Aged Debt Recovery solution will generate additional revenue for the council. Based upon the retention rates for each type of debt, Districts & Boroughs may wish to investigate Housing Benefit Overpayments initially with Liberata’s service and a full business case can be produced for this alone. Use the “Get In Touch” button to access this information.

Our Static Debt Service can be procured quickly and simply via the Government’s G Cloud 13 Framework.

Eastleigh Borough Council has worked with Liberata for a number of years who undertake the council's empty home reviews, and I must say, their service exceeded all expectations. From start to finish, they demonstrated professionalism, efficiency, and a genuine commitment to addressing this critical issue in our community. Thanks to Liberata, the council has been able to maximise our empty home bonus year on year. This positive impact on our community cannot be overstated.

The RV Finder service from Liberata has really helped us ensure that our data is as accurate as possible and, when the VOA has processed the outstanding cases, I fully expect to see more than £1,000,000 of additional RV. The “risk and reward” model works well and the Council only has to pay for their success and the service is something that we will use on a regular basis.

Liberata has been empowered to create a seamless integration with technology to digitally transform the Revenues and Benefits service whilst trying to protect local jobs. The joint strategy has helped to deliver innovative solutions that have exceeded expectations, whilst providing savings to the authority. This surge in digital engagement has helped deliver strong year one outturn with electronic billing and the technology will enable us to show improvements in the benefits speed of processing and in Council Tax processing of moves, discounts and exemptions.
