Freedom of Information
The documents on this page provide a list of companies and organisations that are liable for business rates in Hyndburn.
All the information provided is what we can disclose under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
What is included in the account information?
- Property addresses, descriptions and Local Authority property references
- Current rateable values
- Accounts awarded relief
Information on discretionary relief is exempt from disclosure under section 43 of the Freedom of Information Act because providing it may harm the commercial interests of the business.
The information is extracted on first working day following 1 January, 1 April, 1 July and 1 October .
Credits on the business rates accounts
We can confirm that there are no outstanding credits held on our accounts as these are either in the process of being refunded or are held because the charge for empty rates is due to commence shortly. Refunds are processed as soon as possible, preferably by direct BACS transfer and we aim to return overpayments to customers within 14 days of any credit being identified.
If a credit balance is not refunded / transferred to another account, because the company is dissolved or the ratepayer’s forwarding address is untraceable, it is treated as a credit balance write on and is netted off against the NNDR pool.
