Council Tax accounts with a credit balance
Requested Mon 16 May 2022
Responded Tue 24 May 2022
All Council Tax accounts with a credit balance.
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 the likes of 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.
f. Please state whether the account is a live/open account or a closed account, and, if closed, the date it closed.
g. Please provide the most up to date and accurate information that you can, please confirm the date that the data was pulled from your system.
Please see attached, our response to your Freedom of Information request.
The report was run 23rd May 2022. The figure in the column that says 'outstanding debt' is the credit amount. We do not have a report with an option to pick up credits, so we have to put in debt with less than 0 to pick up all accounts in credit.
