FOI request (FOI221011)
Requested Fri 04 August 2017
Responded Fri 04 August 2017
In accordance with the provisions specified within the above Act I hereby request information relating to the Council's current or intended policy concerning Revaluation Relief (otherwise known as Revaluation Support)
Required Information:- The eligibility criteria for Revaluation Relief set out in the Council policy. Specifically;
What is the maximum rateable value to which this relief will be applied.
What is the minimum increase (%) in rateable value of a business property between the 2010 and 2017 valuation periods required in order for an application to be considered.
How will Revaluation Relief be calculated (in terms of percentage savings and number of financial years applicable)
Will eligibility be determined by the length of time the applicant has been located in the authority boundary.
Any other factors relevant to the consideration of the eligibility of a business for this relief.
Please note that this request is concerned with the centrally funded Discretionary Revaluation Relief and not Transitional Relief, which is applied automatically.
It is with regret that Hastings Borough Council has not agreed the Revaluation Relief policy. We expect the policy to be agreed later in the year but in the meantime customers are being advised and reduced payments being accepted until the policy is agreed by Cabinet.
