FOI request (FOIR-376109835)
Council tax refund
Requested Thu 04 November 2021
Responded Fri 12 November 2021
I am aware that all Billing Authorities hold on accounts 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 Council Tax credit balances remain payable. I understand you will not provide individuals names. Please note I am not asking for Business Rates but that of council tax accounts held by housing associations, property developers and so on.
b. The value of overpayment in each case which remains unclaimed.
c. The years(s) in which overpayment is for.
d. The property address the credit relates to.
e. A write to address and write to company name if available.
f. Please state whether the account is a live/open account or a closed account; if closed the date it closed.
Please provide the most up to date and accurate information that you can, and please confirm the date that the data was pulled from your system.
Please see attached spreadsheet.
The report was run 8th November 2021. Please note the Property Reference number relates to the property, not the account number for the customer. This reference is available on the internet, for example the gov.uk website regarding a property's rateable value. The figure in the column that says 'outstanding debt' is the credit amount.
