Open data

Top level, Business Rates:


The following datasets provide information on non-domestic properties within the North Devon area. The information is updated quarterly each year.

The Council regularly receives repeat requests for a list of companies/charities etc. that have become liable for Non-Domestic Rates NDR between two specific dates ie. 1 August - 16 August 2018. Unfortunately we are unable to provide the information this way. The reporting element that is used by Revenues is only able to extract information on the day that a report is run, which then provides a snapshot as to how the accounts stand on that specific day. The system does not allow the team to select specific historic/past dates back over the years to run reports on to see which premises became liable for NDR. It is worth noting that the reporting system used by Revenues is a live system that is continually being updated.

Instead, a comparison can be made between the datasets that are published below which provide a snapshot of the accounts held with the authority as at the dates indicated below, which are the dates that the reports were run by the Revenues team.

With regard to NDR credit balances, The Council no longer publishes the details of individual business rates credit balances. Following careful consideration of the ICO decision for Wandsworth Council FS50619844 and discussions with the Council’s Revenues team, the Council considers that the release of this data would be likely to prejudice the prevention and detection of crime and therefore the Council considers that this data is exempt from disclosure under Section 31 of the Act. Instead, an alternative dataset has been created and is now published, please see the last dataset in the table below.

Should you still wish to formally request this information under the Act, please email legalservices@northdevon.gov.uk
