Business Rates


This request is made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and further t o a decision of the Information Tribunal in England and the London Borough of Bexley v Information Commissioner 2007.

In accordance with the above, I hereby request a list of Business Rates accounts that meet the following criteria:

  1. Current overpayment/credit shown for any financial year if credit balance hasn't been carried forward
  2. Accounts where a 'write on' has been used since 1st April 2000 to cancel an overpayment which has not since been reversed

I would request that the list contains the following information:

*Information is only requested where the ratepayer is a company and not an individual as I appreciate this is limited by the Data Protection Acts.


The attached document indicates credit balances of companies currently held on our council tax database up to the period ending 31 March 2011. As requested the table provides the ratepayers name, address of property concerned, year and amount of credit.
