Business Rates Information and Council Tax Recovery Notices – Frequently Requested Information


The Council receives a high number of Freedom of Information requests for business rates, which are often similar or identical in nature.  To assist businesses and individuals who may request this information and to avoid the need to make a request, the Council publishes the following information:

We aim to update these reports every 6 – 8 weeks and the Council will no longer respond to individual requests for information which is published. Instead, requesters will be redirected to the information on this webpage. The above information was extracted in November 2023.

Important information about the information which is published

We aim to update this information every 6 – 8 weeks.  The information is a snapshot of data held on the date and time the report is created;

The business rates records will indicate who is liable to pay the charge, not who owns the property.  The ratepayer could be a leaseholder, occupier or owner;

The correspondence address is the most recent contact address held on our systems;

The Council does not include account reference numbers for reasons of security; and

Unless otherwise stated, the information will cover a financial year (April 01 – March 31)

Please note

Ratepayer's names and correspondence addresses are not provided if the ratepayer is an individual such as a partnership or sole trader as the Council considers this to be personal data.   Personal data is exempt from disclosure under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 unless one of the conditions as set out in the UK General Data Protection Regulation under Article 6 is met.  The Council is satisfied that none of those conditions is met in this case.

Please contact us to make a formal Freedom of Information request if the information you require is not covered by any of this published information.
