Business rates data

Cornwall Council, Town and Parish, and the Police and Crime Commissioner elections information and results.


The council receives many requests for information relating to business rates accounts. We are now publishing details of our most frequently requested information on this page in order that you do not need to make a formal request and can obtain the information more quickly.

All business rates accounts including those with relief

What’s included

  • property address and reference number
  • liable ratepayer
  • start date of account
  • property description
  • current rateable value
  • reliefs and empty properties

What’s not included

  • We do not provide contact names or address for the companies listed, as this information is available from Companies House
  • We do not supply ratepayer telephone numbers or email addresses, as these are supplied to the council in confidence and for the sole purpose of administering their business rate liability
  • The ratepayer is the person liable to pay the charge. In many cases this is a leaseholder and not an owner. It is not possible to identify the owners from our records.  This information is available from Land Registry
  • Account references are not included as these are personal to the account, and are used to ensure that a ratepayer is actually the account holder when they contact the council
  • Empty properties where a sole trader is liable have been redacted for data protection

The next list will be published in the next quarter.

Business rates credits and write-ons

The Information Commissioners Office (ICO) published information highlighting the risks of releasing details business rates credit balances, in particular the potential for fraud to be committed using this information.  Therefore, we no longer publish these credit/write-on balances on our website or release them in response to an FOI request.
