NNDR Business rates data/information we cannot publish

We are often asked to provide information about business ratepayers. Under the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018), we are not permitted to release any information which can be used to identify an individual person as this would constitute a violation of their rights.

We have removed those entries that appear to relate to individuals from the information file published here in order to protect their individual rights as required by the DPA 2018. For example; the names of people have been removed from records in cases where the business property listed:

is that of a sole trader

is a partnership

includes people mentioned by name as 'contacts'.

In doing this we are complying with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
