Credits on business rates accounts

Viewing credits on business rate accounts

You can access a list of credits on business rate accounts in company names as of 1 April 2023.

The council has to offset credits against ongoing charges. This happens every year on 31 March. As a result 1 April provides the best snapshot of genuine credits on accounts.

The data is limited to company name, correspondence address, credit amount and the year it relates to.

  • credits are only included where the ratepayer can be identified from our records as being a company
  • the year is the financial year. So 2020 is the financial year 2020/21 ending 31 March 2021
  • the correspondence address is the last contact address on the business rate records. The age of some of the credits means that these addresses may no longer be valid
  • account references are not included as these are personal to the account
  • accounts can cover multiple properties. Credits are held at account level, so no property information is listed

If you paid rates to us as a sole trader or partnership, and believe that you may have left a credit account, you can contact us. Call us on 01483 505050 or email
