The truths they don't want you to read....

Check your bank account!

Regular readers will remember how I told them to apply for the Small Business Rates Relief Small Business Bonus Scheme, giving potentially large discounts for low rated buildings.

When we checked our bank statement yesterday we found the Council have collected 1/10 of the original bill, which equates to about 50% of the real bill.

Apparently, they had never received the application form which we sent in the day I originally blogged, and now they have the money, and the benefit of the interest, and we have to jump through the hoops again.

Anyone else got the same problem? Or is this a result of me criticising the process?

Hi Did mine around the same time- when blogged it. Got letter back dated 25th April showing reduction and they are taking the correct amount out of account.

Maybe they just don't like you Angus. Have you any enemies in the council?

Enemies in the Council????

I put it down to an administrative oversight!!

New form submitted - amended demand awaited with baited breath.
