South Staffordshire District Council has been invited to
participate in an exercise to protect tax payers and ensure public
money is correctly spent.
The National Fraud Initiative (NFI) is a biennial data matching
exercise run by the Cabinet Office to identify fraudulent
and erroneous payments from the public purse.
To make sure you're paying the right level of council tax we're
reviewing all of the homes which are claiming a single person
discount for living alone where there is more than one person
registered on the electoral register.
The review should help us identify any
households claiming where they shouldn't, targeting those who are
committing fraud, and making sure your council tax is going
straight to providing services for your families and
If you think you might be claiming where you
shouldn't, tell us now and we can help you with a repayment plan
for any back-dated amounts that you might owe.
Please complete this form and return it to email@example.com.
A trial of this pilot exercise undertaken by the London Borough of
Hillingdon identified £1million in savings.
South Staffordshire District Council is required to participate in
NFI under Part 6 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act
2014. The authority is under a duty to protect the public
funds it administers. It may share information provided to it, with
other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public
funds, in order to prevent and detect fraud.
