Business Rates Assessments and Reliefs

Tom Snowdon made this Freedom of Information request to Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council,

I understand that your council regularly publishes information on business/non-domestic rated properties, However recent datasets do not confirm whether properties in your area are subject to Retail Relief/Discount.
We therefore request a list detailing all current Rateable Value assessments and which accounts are, and which are not, subject to some form rate relief (eg. Small Business Rate Relief (SBRR), charitable, empty relief, retail relief). Please include the following columns insofar as possible.
• Full Postal Address
• Rating Description (e.g. offices, workshop etc.)
• Correspondence Address (if different from Full Postal Address)
• Account Name
• Account No./Ref.
• Property Ref
• RV 2017
• RV 2010
• SBRR (discount, not multiplier) – yes or no
• Retail Relief/Discount – yes or no
• Vacant – yes or no
• Other relief (e.g. charity, hardship, rural, community & amateur sports clubs etc.) – yes or no
• Current liability start date

Yours faithfully,

Tom Snowdon

Helen Ambler, Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Helen Ambler,

Dear Helen. Many thanks for your response, however the data on the link you have provided does not fully address my request with regards specifically to retail relief.

The data on the data mill website does reference "DRR = Retail Premises Discount (to 31/03/16 only)" however we are interested to know which properties have the retail relief which has been available since 01/04/19 (guidelines: https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio...). Can you please re-examine my request regarding this issue?

Yours sincerely,

Tom Snowdon

Dear Tom,

Thank you for your email.

I have spoken to my colleague in our Business Rates dept. This data on the link provided is in fact for the current financial year, and not 2015/16. The description against 'DRR' in incorrect. I have asked our web team to amend this.

Kind regards,
