FOI Date: 
Monday, 20 September 2021

A full list of businesses/companies/charities that have become recently responsible for business rates within your council area between to 1st-15th Sept 21.

I would like you to include the full business name and address, the liable party, the date of responsibility and the type of property this relates to.

RESPONSE

Section 22 states:

 

(1)          Information is exempt information if—

(a)          the information is held by the public authority with a view to its publication, by the authority or any other person, at some future date (whether determined or not),

(b)          the information was already held with a view to such publication at the time when the request for information was made, and

(c)           it is reasonable in all the circumstances that the information should be withheld from disclosure until the date referred to in paragraph (a).

 

I can confirm that Scarborough Borough Council holds the information you have requested.  The information is exempt under Section 22 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), because Scarborough Borough Council publish data relating to Business Rates on their website on a quarterly basis, and the information which you have requested will therefore be made available shortly.  The Council publishes information on Business Rates at https://www.scarborough.gov.uk/home/open-data-and-foi/business-rates-information-requests
