Dear Chesterfield Borough 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.

Many thanks for the response.
As the data is as at April 2019 I wondered if you could kindly provide revised data as at todays date.
Many thanks for your assistance.
Dear C Pleasants
The data is from May, not April, and it is due to be updated again later this month, or the beginning of August. If this is not acceptable then we can get up to date data within twenty days.
