Non-Domestic Rates Bill (Diplomatic Missions)

Volume 453: debated on Tuesday 28 November 2006

The majority of diplomatic missions in the United Kingdom pay the national non-domestic rates (NNDR) requested from them. They are obliged to pay only 6 per cent. of the total NNDR value which represents payment for specific services such as street cleaning, lighting, maintenance and fire services. The total amount outstanding from all diplomatic missions is approximately £850,000.00. However, as at 1 July 2006 missions listed below owed over £10,000 in respect of NNDR. Eight additional diplomatic missions, who owe £10,000 or more in respect of NNDR, have made arrangements with the Valuation Office Agency to clear their outstanding debts and have not been included in this list.
