The following table shows both (a) the amount national non-domestic rates collected by, and (b) the amount of revenue support grant received by Peterborough between 2005-06 and 2009-10. The data are shown in £ million.

NNDR collected Revenue support grant (£ million)
2005-06 67.2 101.6
2006-07 75.6 10.0
2007-08 75.7 9.3
2008-09 83.0 8.7
2009-10 83.0 14.0

The data are as reported by local authorities. The national non-domestic rates figures are the net yield figures taken from the national non-domestic rates (NNDR3) outturn forms submitted annually by all billing authorities in England. The net yield is the amount of national non-domestic rates collected by an authority before the deduction of collection costs i.e. losses in collection, repayments in respect of previous years and the allowance for the cost of collection.

The data for revenue support grant are taken from the Budget Requirement (BR1) forms submitted annually by all billing authorities in England. The revenue support grant figure for 2005-06 contains an element of funding for schools which was removed in subsequent years and paid as the dedicated schools grant.
