Business rates information

We regularly get requests for information on Business Rates (or NNDR), therefore, we have decided to publish this information and update it at regular intervals.

A request for updated information in advance of when the next update is due will normally be refused under Section 22 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on the grounds that it is information that we hold with the intention of publishing at a future date.

If you are not able to find the information you require on this page, take a look at our disclosure log, where we publish responses from previous Freedom of Information Act 2000 and Environmental Information Regulations 2004 requests.

Information about the ratepayer at the property will only be displayed if the ratepayer is a company. All information can be found in the documents below.

Accounts in credit

Updated information as at January 2020. We have received a number of requests for credit write on balances from the earliest date our records allow. We are unable to provide this information. Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 applies an exemption from release of information if to do so would exceed the ‘appropriate limit’. There are approximately 1000 records which would have to be examined manually and it would take five minutes to check each record. This would mean a total of approximately 83 hours to comply with these requests. The release of this information is, therefore, exempt under Section 12 of the Act.
