FOI request (FOI228619)
Unclaimed business rate credit balances
Requested Thu 30 November 2017
Responded Thu 30 November 2017
I would like to obtain recent information, from the council, relating to unclaimed business rate credit balances. Please also indicate when the requested information (spreadsheet or website) has been updated.
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 and maybe considered untraceable by the council.
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, with credits of £2,500 and above, including the following information:
- The name of each business in respect of which non-domestic rate credit balances remain payable
- The value of over payment in each case which remain unclaimed
- The years(s) in which over payment was made and the hereditament address
- The name of each business in respect of which non-domestic rate credit balances have been written back on to the NDR account
- The value of write back in each case which remains unclaimed
- The Year(s) in which write back was made (if available) and the hereditament address that the write back relates to.
This information is held
