Unclaimed Business Rates
Requested Wed 21 December 2016
Responded Tue 03 January 2017
Please can you provide me with the following information under the Freedom Of Information Act 2000:-
Unclaimed business rate credit balances.
I am aware that all Billing Authorities hold on account sums of money that are due to be returned to ratepayers and for a variety of reasons have not been repaid.
I therefore request a breakdown of credit balances accrued since your earliest records, for the amounts owing to all incorporated companies within the authorities billing area, including the following information:
A. The name of each business in respect of which non-domestic rate credit balances remain payable
B. The value of over payment in each case which remains unclaimed
C. The years(s) in which over payment was made
D. The hereditament address
E. The name of each business in respect of which non-domestic rate credit balances has been written back on to the non-domestic rates account
F. The value of write back in each case which remains unclaimed
G. The years(s) in which write back was made (if available)
H. The hereditament address that the write back relates to.
I appreciate that one email address may relates to more than one local authority and so I request the data for all local authorities ideally in an excel format, one excel tab per council.
This information is held
Please see attached spreadsheets
