FOI request (FOIR-188424165)
Requested Fri 27 March 2020
Responded Tue 16 June 2020
Under the freedom of information act of 2000, could I please request the following business rates data compiled into one spreadsheet
- Billing Authority Property Reference Code (linking the property to the VOA database reference)
- Firm's Trading Name (i.e. property occupant)
- Full Property Address (Number, Street, Postal Code, Town)
- Occupied / Vacant
- Date of Occupation / Vacancy
- Detail of any reliefs / Exemptions applied to the account
- 2017/2018 rates year charge (Inclusive of transition)
- 2018/2019 rates year charge (Inclusive of transition)
- 2019/2020 rates year charge (Inclusive of transition)
- 2020/2021 rates year charge (Inclusive of transition)
Please find attached our response to your Freedom of Information request.
Please accept my apologies for the delay in the response, due to the immense workload on the department due to the Covid-19 Business Support Grant work.
The information requested is on three spreadsheets as it is not possible to produce a single report (one full list, one reliefs, one exemptions). The property reference is included on all three reports.
It is not possible to provide annual charges because this requires manual checking of each account and would take exceed the time limit set by the Information Commissioner under Section 12 of the act.
