Last week the Government released The Certification of Enforcement Agents Regulations 2014, detailing the certification process for enforcement agents and providing the prescribed forms and notices to be used.
With the recovery process, new fee structure, prescribed forms and certification process finalised, we are only awaiting final transitional arrangements from the old regulations to the new and guidance from HMRC on VAT.
Our Contract Managers are already supplying clients with our new working processes and providing training for Council staff across the Country. This week, we also began distributing information leaflets to debtors detailing the changes and how this may affect them.
If you are a local authority and require further information, please contact your Contract Manager.
If you are a debtor and require further information, please visit our FAQ page.
The new regulations for enforcement agents is being implemented on 6 April 2014.
The Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act covers all aspects of enforcement from the training and certification of agents, the process for enforcing debts, the fees chargeable through to the letters/forms used.
Over the coming weeks, Rundles will be ensuring that not only are our staff and clients aware of our transition processes for 6 April, but also our debtors and how the new regulations will impact them.
Make sure you keep an eye on our website for further information.
Today the Government has laid before Parliament the Statutory Instrument containing the fees relating to Taking Control of Goods.
