FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST REFERENCE NO: 9117/17
I write in connection with your request for information which was received
on 6^th December 2017.  Please find below the response to your request:
Regarding speed awareness courses, could you please tell me how the £88
fee is divided between yourselves and the course provider TTC.
REPLY: Please see the ndors website [1]https://ndors.org.uk/faqs/
NDORS is funded on a local level by the offender paying for the cost of
the course, set by the local police force in conjunction with their
preferred course supplier. The course supplier keeps an amount to cover
their costs. The police cost recovery is met by a charge being imposed on
each and every offender completing the course (currently £49) This charge
is collected by UKROEd . All but £4 from this fee is returned to the
originating force by UKROEd which is to fund the cost recovery of
providing central business support to NDORS, the scheme. Where applicable,
VAT is charged at the standard rate, and this money goes to the Treasury.
The course fee is made up of either two or three component parts.
The course cost.
This is cost of providing the course to the offender by the course
provider.
The central charge - The money collected by from the course provider to
cover the police administration costs and central support to the NDORS
scheme.
VAT - Where applicable, VAT may be added to the overall cost. This depends
on the VAT status of the course provider
To clarify
The current cost to attend a course within the West Mercia Police area is
£88 and West Mercia course provider, TTC, are subject to VAT
