London Borough of Croydon

The council receives a number of requests for information relating to business rates accounts. We are now publishing details of the most frequently requested information on this page in order that you do not need to make a formal request and can obtain the information more quickly. The requests covered are listed below:

Business Rates Information

  • Accounts in credit
  • Empty properties
  • New accounts
  • All Business Rates Accounts including those with Relief

Accounts in Credit

The credits are a snapshot as at October 2017.

The report contains Names, Property Address, Property Reference Number, Amount of Credit and the Billing Period.

Customers whose accounts are in credit are notified of this and invited to claim it back. On closed accounts, if the credit is unclaimed, the credit will remain on the account. On open accounts any credit will be used to reduce future payments although the customer has the option to claim it back at any point.
