Could you please reply to me with the following report attached: – Unclaimed business rate credit balances.
We are cognizant of the fact that Billing Authorities hold on account sums of money that are due to be returned to ratepayers and for a variety of reasons have not been repaid.
I therefore request a breakdown of credit balances accrued since your earliest records, for the amounts owing to all incorporated companies within your authority’s billing area, including the following information:
The legal 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 overpayment was made
The hereditament address
The legal name of each business in respect of which non-domestic rate credit balances have been written back on to the NDR account
The value of write back in each case which remains unclaimed
The years(s) in which the write back was made (if available)
The hereditament address that the write back relates to.
Devon County Council is not a rate collecting authority and therefore does not hold the information requested.
Rate collection is the responsibility of District and Unitary Councils in Devon. Please contact them directly using the information on the link provided
