Original and most trusted data hub, providing secure tracing and fraud detection solutions for the Public Sector since 2006.
Established in 2006, LoCTA is the first search hub to share and integrate Local Authority and national data sets, creating the broadest and most comprehensive data hub available to the public sector.
A tried, tested and trusted tool, LoCTA has evolved to become the UK’s preferred search hub for Local Authorities in tackling benefits and business rate fraud and tracing council tax debt.
Updated weekly, the LoCTA Hub features a range of flexible searches and filters to ensure accuracy, reduce false positives and increase hit rates.

“We have many residents that move to neighbouring Local Authorities. Historically it has been difficult to trace these residents. However, LoCTA enables us to locate these people so we can collect council tax quickly. The product is good value for money and proves critical in allowing us to trace and collect outstanding money in a timely manner.”
Robbie Parker, Council Tax Manager, Bradford.
The LoCTA Hub provides access to the data of 60% of the UK’s billing Authorities.
The LoCTA Hub is the single route to debt recovery and fraud identification for Local Authorities. The Hub combines Authority and third party data sets to enable Authorities to verify the details of a debtor, find a debtor who has moved away and make sure that the correct benefit and discounts are given to Authority’s customers.
Below is a quick overview of the features and benefits that our Authorities gain from having access to the Hub. For more detailed information on uses for each department or team, please see the information listed by department below.
