FOI request (FOIR-467067704)
Requested Tue 22 November 2022
Responded Fri 23 December 2022
Under the Freedom of Information Act of 2000, could you please provide me with the most up-to-date list of the following business rates accounts in your billing area:
Industrial properties (that is, Warehouses, Workshops and Factories but not Retail Warehouses) that are occupied and not in receipt of any relief.
Please include the following data:
1. Ratepayer Name,
3. Date of Occupation,
4. Rateable Value,
5. Property Description, and
The date the data was generated.
I appreciate that properties owned/rented by individuals are personal information and such personal data (that is, the Firm's Trading Name) would be excluded from my request in terms of Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In such cases, please provide the remaining information with the Firm's Trading Name either blank or listed as 'individual'.
In addition, as we are asking for properties only occupied by Limited Companies that are not empty and where no relief is applicable.
We feel this FOI is outside the scope for refusals in terms of fraud for empty properties or relief and as such can be provided under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
Please provide this as machine-readable as either a CSV or Microsoft Excel file.
Please see attached our response to our response to your Freedom of Information request.
The information attached is for industrial properties occupied (not vacant) by a Limited Companies only.
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.
