The revenues and benefits team at North Norfolk District Council collected 98.7% of Council Tax and 99.36% of Non-Domestic (Business) Rates according to year-end figures for 2016/17.
The Council Tax figure is the highest percentage collected for the past 10 years and the second highest ever collected by North Norfolk District Council.
The Non-Domestic (Business) Rates figure is the highest percentage collected for the past nine years and the second highest ever collected by North Norfolk District Council.
The figures mean that the council has beaten its collection targets of 98.5% and 99.2% respectively.
Cllr Wyndham Northam, North Norfolk District Council’s Cabinet Member for Financial Services and Revenues and Benefits, said: “This is fantastic news and is a reflection of a great deal of hard work put in by the teams responsible for collecting these monies.
“This revenue collected will make a real difference at a time when resources are limited and funding is reduced.”
The data has been sent to the Department for Communities and Local Government as required by the Local Government Act 1972.
The collection information is due to be brought to Cabinet on 5 June, Scrutiny on 14 June and Full Council on 21 June 2017 as part of the Debt Management Annual Report.
