Freedom of Information Request

Business Rates

Received: 18 May 2020

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I would be interested in any information held by the local authority regarding my request. I understand that I do not have to specify particular files or documents and it is the departments responsibilty to provide the information I require. If you need further clarification please contact me by email.

I would like the information to be emailed to me in electronic form.

Please confirm:-

1) in the financial year 2019/20 please advise:-

I) total number of summons issued in the Magistrates Court for non-payment either in whole or and/or in part of non-domestic (business) rates

II) total number of Liability Orders obtained in the Magistrates Court for non-payment either in whole or in part of non-domestic (business) rates.

III) total number of referrals made to Enforcement Officers (Bailiffs) to enforce Liability Orders for non-payment either in whole or in part of non-domestic (business) rates.

If my request is denied in whole and/or in part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the Act. I will also expect you to release all non-exempt material. I reserve the right to appeal any decision to withhold information and/or to charge fees from which this request should be exempt.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request. I look forward to your response within 20 working days as outlined by the statute.
