We cannot provide details of refused Section 44a applications that have been made, as the Academy software does not have a facility to log any appeals that have been declined, it can only record cases where an appeal has been granted.

The EDM Document Imaging system only has a limited number of categories in which new incoming work is recorded and has no specific category set aside for S44a work only. Consequently it would be impossible without going through every piece of work recorded in the Business Rates EDM software. The time taken to do this would take far in excess of the of the 2 .5 days of work that would be required to gather the information. All other data is contain within the attachment.
