Council Tax & Business Rate debts are among the highest concerns for households in the UK. For many, in particular those who are deemed to be amongst the most vulnerable in society, Recovery and Enforcement of thses debts can be catastrophic. Libranox's goal is simple - to ensure appropriate utilisation of Civil Enforcement Agents.
With prior experience of working with some of the UK's most vulnerable and poverty-stricken individuals and households, Libranox was created with a view to ensure everybody had somewhere to turn for an all inclusive support programme - whether it be simple advice given or a full mediation package.
Not to leave anything unaddressed, Libranox also offer its consultancy services to the policy-makers - at both Local and Central Government level.
Whilst there will always be a need for Local Authorities to call upon Civil Enforcement Agents to aid in the recovery of unpaid liabilities, it is apparent that this age-old procedure is in need of updating. With the current household debt climate being toxic, it is only right that a full review, and adjustment to existing recovery procedures is considered. After all, an Enforcement Agent stood on the doorstep of a benefit claimant is not going to be very productive.
Libranox serve as a mediator between Client-Local Authority-Enforcement Agent, which alleviates some of the stresses and frustrations between the parties. Also, with our involvement, we can ensure the "Can't Payers" are on the way to resolving their arrears, leaving the Enforcement Agents to focus more appropriately on the "Won't-Payer".
Libranox offer Local Authorities the opportunity to work in cohesion to seek out a more appropriate recovery method. With Local Government's in-depth knowledge and experience and Libranox's modern approach in Local Taxation recovery, Libranox's offering is set to benefit all involved.
With your kind support, Libranox will be able to do the following:
1: Expand our Mediation Division, to provide help to more households and businesses who are trying to resolve their arrears situation
2: Market our offering to Local Authorities, and the Civil Enforcement Agent community
3: Work towards turning the tide on recovery and enforcement, making it a more positive and engaging experience for communities, thus breaking a very engrained and vicious cycle for those either momentarily or entrenched in financial difficulty
4: Work towards bringing down the near £5bn combined Council Tax and Business Rates defecit, caused by the heavy-arrears situation faced by so many.
