Do you share my business rates records with other organisations?
The information you give us is used and held in accordance with the Local Government Finance Act 1988, and the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998. Requests made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 may ask for general information regarding limited companies and PLCs which we will supply as they are not covered by the Data Protection Act.
We have a duty to protect public funds and we may use business rates data in cross system and cross comparison checks to ensure our records are correct. We may also disclose relevant information to other council departments where it is necessary and lawful to do so. We may also share information with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds.
