Credit list:

This report is checked and monies returned to customers once the working procedures have been followed.

Credits due to vacations are returned once authorisation from the customer is received, these are regularly followed up to ensure monies are returned.

Credits due to overpayments are refunded when they appear on this list.

Credits relating to valuation changes are returned as soon as any interest has been calculated, usually within 20 days of the council being notified of the change.
