FOI ID number
Business Rates Credit Balances

I am writing to you to request the following information on NNDR Accounts;

* A list of credit balances for both current and closed accounts

* A list of credit balances which have not been brought forward from previous years

* A list of credit balances which have been written on instead of refunded

Could you please include the following information for both credit balances and write ons;

* The full address of the hereditament

* The name of the account holder

* The value of the credit/overpayment

* The year of which the credit balance refers to

I would also like to make a request for:

* A list of businesses that haven’t applied for SBRR and/or Retail Relief that qualify for SBRR/Retail Relief with the start date of the rates account.

It would be appreciated if this information could be provided in an excel format.

Where possible, we would like this information to date back as far as your records allow. We acknowledge that you may not be able to provide information naming individuals as opposed to corporate entities and therefore accept the ratepayers name is not given in these circumstances. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
