A private company, which is tasked with running and organising North Somerset Council’s housing benefit and council tax operations, has been taken over by a Japanese firm.

Liberata UK, which has a base within the council’s Castlewood building in Clevedon, has been bought out by Outsourcing Inc, a multi-national company with headquarters in Tokyo.

A North Somerset Council spokesman told the Times that Liberata’s takeover will not impact its performance or affect costs for it or the district’s taxpayers.
