Dear Braintree District Council,
Dear Bassetlaw District Council,

I am seeking to obtain a report under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (c.36). Could you please reply to me with the following report attached:

Unclaimed business rate credit balances.

I am aware 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:

A. The legal name of each business in respect of which non-domestic rate credit balances remain payable
B. The value of overpayment in each case which remains unclaimed
C. The years(s) in which overpayment was made
D. The hereditament address
E. The legal name of each business in respect of which non-domestic rate credit balances have been written back on to the NDR account
F. The value of write back in each case which remains unclaimed
G. The years(s) in which the write back was made (if available)
H. The hereditament address that the write back relates to

I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

Yours faithfully,

C Pleasants

Dear C Pleasants

 

Further to your Freedom of Information request received by Braintree
District Council, I write to advise you of the following:

 

The Freedom of Information Act enables access to information held by the
Council, subject to the exemptions contained within the Act. The Act does
not require the Council to create information to respond to a request if
the requested information is not held, nor to give an opinion or comment.

 

With regard to your request, I write to advise you of the following:

 

The Council considers that the information you have requested (NNDR
Credits) is exempt from disclosure under Section 21 of the Act -
Information accessible by other means, namely the Braintree District
Council website at the following link:

 

[1]https://www.braintree.gov.uk/info/200176...

 

Please note account numbers are redacted. The redacted information is
considered to be personal data and therefore to be considered exempt from
disclosure under Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 -
Personal Information (disclosure would contravene the Data Protection Act
Principles - First Principle - processing of personal data).

 

If you disagree with the Council’s decision in respect of your freedom of
information request or are otherwise unhappy with how the Council has
dealt with your request in the first instance you may approach Emma Wisbey
