Decision details

Irrecoverable Debt on the Agresso Sundry Debtor System:

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To write off the debtor amount of £8,626.85 (net of recoverable VAT) as summarised in the report

Reasons for the decision:

Regular review and write off of bad debt is good financial practice.  The debts listed in the report are considered irrecoverable and writing them off will enable the council to recover VAT on those less than 4 years and 6 months old.

Alternative options considered:

Not to write-off any bad debts; this is not acceptable financial practice and means that we will not be able to recover VAT on debts that are unlikely to be paid.

To amend the recommended list of debt to be written off – a stringent process has been followed to arrive at the list of debts recommended for write-off.
