In accordance with the above, I hereby request a list of Business Rate accounts that meet the following criteria:

Current overpayment/credit shown for any financial year if credit balance hasn't been carried forward.
Accounts where a 'write on' has been used since 1st April 2000 to cancel an overpayment which has not since been reversed.

I would request that the list contains the following information:

Ratepayer name (Information is only requested where the ratepayer is a company and not an individual as I appreciate this is limited by the Data Protection Acts).
Address of property concerned.
Amount of overpayment/write on.
If possible, the period/financial year relating to overpayment/credit/write on.

Warning: This message has not yet been sent for an unknown reason.

Where the liable party is an individual, the ratepayer details are considered to be personal and therefore exempt from disclosure.

We have not cancelled credits by writing on, with the exception of amounts of less than one pound.
