Debt enforcement policy
This policy covers all debt recovery activities carried out by Boston Borough Council.
This includes but is not limited to: -
- Council Tax
- Non Domestic Rates
- Overpaid Housing Benefit
- Sundry Debts
Efficient and well administered debt management is vital to the council. A corporate and consistent approach to debt management will be taken to ensure the council's interests are protected and residents who are struggling financially are supported to pay through the provision of appropriate advice and early intervention.
Whilst the majority of income due to the council is collected in a routine manner, unpaid charges and debts do arise for a variety of reasons. The policy below sets out the principles that it expects our officers to follow in the recovery and enforcement of debts.
