To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether local billing authorities are required to adopt the Valuebill interface; and what guidance her Department has issued to local authorities on its adoption. (202633)

Valuebill is a voluntary initiative aimed at improving the electronic exchange of property information between local authorities and the Valuation Office Agency. It is up to local authorities to decide whether to adopt the Valuebill interface. Valuebill is mentioned in the ODPM 2005 publication “Delivering Efficiency in Local Services: Further Guidance for Local Authorities” as an initiative to assist local authorities in increasing efficiency.
