The BBC reports that a cleaning firm, Broadbent and Co Ltd are owed about £10,000 by NCC. Tut tut.
"A spokesman for Nottingham City Council said: "We have put a new system in place to reduce the costs of administering payments by £300,000 a year, which largely is proving successful. But we have had some teething problems that have meant some delayed payments. We're fully aware how this can impact on businesses and will always do everything we can to ensure prompt payments."
I wonder how much of those savings can be explained by the new system forgetting to pay people?
So, next time your business falls behind with its business rates tell them you've got a new system in place and you're having 'teething problems'. Then everything will be ok.
