New Fees & Charges Benchmarking Club

New Fees & Charges Benchmarking Club

How can your authority generate more income? Have you managed to identify all the potential areas of income growth for your authority? How do your income generating activities compare to other local authorities’?

One of the key drivers of income generation is the discretionary fees and charges levied by local authorities. To that end, CIPFA is launching a new Fees & Charges Benchmarking exercise.  This new exercise will drill down into the discretionary charges levied for key services and allow local authorities to fully understand what their peers are charging for similar services.

Only by understanding how your charges compare to those of your peers will you be able to develop informed strategies around charging for services.

This new benchmarking exercise will provide you with an invaluable analysis in plenty of time to support your 2018-19 business planning process, and the cost of annual membership is just £750 + VAT (Counties and Unitaries) or £375 + VAT (Districts).

Access to example questionnaires, reports and details on how to order can be found at our website.
