This is a request for information, filed under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. We wish to obtain information, from the Council, relating to unclaimed credits for non-domestic
ratepayers. We are aware that all Billing Authoritieshold on account sums of money that are due to be returned to business ratepayers and for a variety of reasons have not been repaid and maybe considered untraceable by the Council. This maybe because
Companies do not know that there is an overpayment, they may have moved premises, merges and/or changed their name or simply ceased trading. In such circumstances, the monies could be due to the creditors of that company. Exacta shall use the information requested
to trace those businesses who have failed to claim such credit balances.
We therefore request a list of both credit balances and credit balance write ons accrued since your earliest records, for the amounts owing to all “incorporated” companies within
the authorities billing area, including
The name of each ratepayer for which the credit or credit write on relates to.
The value of overpayment in each case.The year(s) in which overpayment was made.
Please find attached spread sheet with the available information in support for the below request
