Freedom of Information Requests - Business Rates
We regularly receive requests for Business rates information. In order to make this process quicker and to reduce the need for a request, we have joined many other authorities in publishing the data online quarterly.
We are unable to supply details of individuals as this constitutes personal data, as defined by the Data Protection Act 2018; and is exempt from disclosure by virtue of Section 40(2)(a)(i) (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
We have removed any sole trader’s personal information due to the above.
As per information commissioner office decisions FS50643256 and FS50619844 we do not give out any individual information for accounts in credit.
If you have been notified you have a credit please go to: lincoln.gov.uk/business/business-rates-and-bids/rate-reliefs-and-refunds/business-rates-refunds/
