Business Rates Datasets

In this section
Business Rates Datasets

We receive regular FOI requests for information about business properties in the our district. We have made the following commonly requested data available:

  1. All business properties in Wychavon District
  2. Empty Properties
  3. Properties receiving Charitable or Rural Rate Relief
  4. Properties receiving Small Business Rate Relief
  5. New accounts in the previous 3 months
  6. Accounts with credit balances

Each set of data will be updated in January, April, July and October each year.

Notes about the data:

  • The ratepayers name and correspondence address will only be shown for companies and other organisations. If the ratepayer is a person those fields will be blank as required by Data Protection rules.
  • The ratepayer is responsible for paying the rates but may not be the owner of the property. You can find out who owns a property from the Land Registry. View Land Registry pages.
  • Our property reference number is also used by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) which values property for rating purposes on behalf of the government. You can find more information about the valuation of a property, including previous rateable values, by using the property reference number on the Valuation Office Agency website. View Valuation Office Agency pages.
  • We do not disclose account reference numbers as they are personal to the ratepayer and are used to confirm identity.

All Business Properties

This list includes all properties in the Wychavon District Council area that are subject to business rates. The data includes property reference and address, ratepayers name and correspondence address, date the ratepayer became liable, rateable value and description. This list also contains an indicator showing whether the property appears in any of the other lists.

Empty Properties

This list includes all business properties that are empty. The data includes the date the property became empty and the exemption type (if applicable). Business rates are not charged for the first three months that a property is empty or the first six months if it is industrial. After that full rates are payable unless the property is exempt.

Charitable Relief

This list includes properties where the ratepayer is receiving mandatory or discretionary charitable rate relief or rural rate relief. The data includes the type of relief and the percentage awarded.

Small Business Rate Relief

This list includes all properties where the ratepayer receives small business rate relief. The data includes the amount of relief awarded.

New accounts per quarter

This list includes all properties where the ratepayer became liable from a date in the previous quarter. For example, the data published in July will include properties where the ratepayer became liable in April, May or June. The data includes the liability start date.

Wychavon District Council will no longer publish information relating to outstanding credits on Business Rates accounts following a decision notice issued by the Information Commissioners Office. We believe that this information is exempt under Section 31(1)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act. This exemption applies because the release of this information would prejudice the prevention or detection of crime. Due to limited means of personal verification it is possible that credits could be claimed fraudulently and the council has therefore concluded that disclosure of this information into the public domain is no longer in the public interest.

If the data you require is not included in these lists you should send an FOI request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
