I agree it seems to get little coverage. I know that the Charity Commission are keen to work with local authorities in identifying fraudulent claims for charity exemptions on Business Rates. Maybe worth pursuing.
Thanks for posting. I was aware of that. I've been speaking to some LA Treasurers and Chief Internal Auditors on NNDR. There is a general perception that there is a lot of undetected NNDR fraud/error. However, there are still risks to LAs here: 1) are these fraud/errors recoverable? 2) do LAs have the capacity to investigate and/or recover? An LA may double their caseload?
