These tables relate to End of Year (EoY) Rating Debt values, and a count of occupancies* in debt at the 31st March each year, as recorded on the Land & Property Services (LPS) rating system. The information provided is at a point in time and the tables are updated annually.

An occupancy is counted as being in debt where there is an outstanding balance of more than £0 at the end of the rating year.

This data is provided by Domestic, Non-Domestic and overall totals. Mixed properties (a property that is a mix of Domestic and Non-Domestic) are included within the Non-Domestic totals.

It is important to note that the End of Year Debt figures include debts that cannot be legally enforced due to insolvency proceedings, ratepayers residing outside jurisdiction for legal action, as well as those ratepayers who continue to pay rating debt through agreed payment arrangements established through the rating year. LPS continues to pursue End of Year Rating Debt throughout subsequent rating years.

The totals included above are not adjusted for receipts at Year End which have been paid by ratepayers, but not yet allocated to a particular rate account.

*An occupancy represents a liable person, persons, business or organisation at a property at a given time.
