CTSPD service used to identify incorrectly claimed council tax discounts
The Borough of Gedling is in the county of Nottinghamshire and forms part of the Nottingham urban area. The Borough provides services for over 117,000 residents, managing a budget of £12.1 million.
In recent years, like all local authorities, Gedling Borough Council has had to deliver more with fewer resources.
To be able to continue to provide essential services, the Council has implemented a series of fraud detection and prevention solutions to reduce the cost of fraud and error ensuring that funding is spent where citizens need it most.

Gedling Borough Council supports the work done by the National Fraud Initiative and signed up to use the Premium Council Tax Single Persons Discount (CTSPD) matching service soon after its launch.
The service provides a comprehensive view of the household composition of an individual claiming a council tax single person discount. The National Fraud Initiative has partnered with a leading credit referencing bureau to deliver this premium service which allows for the prompt identification of incorrectly claimed council tax single person discounts.
