Business rates freedom of information requests

We receive a number of requests for information on business rates which are similar in nature. The following reports provide this information for public access, and to avoid the need to make a specific request:

  • all current non-domestic properties within the Harrogate Borough Council area
  • current empty property exemptions
  • current non-exempt empty property
  • current mandatory and discretionary relief including small business relief

These reports are published on a quarterly basis. We will not provide individual responses to requests for information held in the above reports but will redirect requests to this web page.

Limitations on data

  • ratepayer's names and correspondence addresses are only provided where the ratepayer is not an individual (sole traders, partnerships etc). Data protection prevents the publication of individual names
