FOI 14219

Unclaimed business rate overpayments


This is a request for information, filed under the Freedom of information act 2000. We wish to obtain the information, from the Council, relating to unclaimed business
rate credit balances.

We are aware that all Billing Authorities hold on account sums of money that are due to be returned to ratepayers, that for a variety of reasons have not been repaid,
and maybe considered untraceable by the Council.

We 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 name of each business in respect of which non-domestic rate credit balances remain payable
The value of overpayment in each case which remains unclaimed
The years(s) in which the overpayment relates to
The hereditament address and
The Billing Authority reference number

Please also list credits that have been written on to your system.


Thank you for your request for information, please find attached a spreadsheet with all the information available within your request.

I trust this is sufficient.
