star this property answer text <p>The time taken to resolve an appeal can be affected by a number of factors, such as the complexity of the case or whether the case proceeds to be listed for hearing by the independent Valuation Tribunal. Some cases can be held up in litigation or placed on hold at the ratepayer's request. The average (median) time taken to resolve challenges for non-domestic properties in each of the last five years is shown in the attached table. This table covers the 2010 Local Rating Lists.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Median (days)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>135<sup>*</sup></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>335</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>413</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>390</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>395</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p>*The 2010 list began on 1 April 2010 so only those challenges received in 2010-11 were resolved in 2010-11. In subsequent years, however, challenges received in previous years can also be resolved so the median clearance time may include more complex challenges which took longer to resolve.</p>

Anyone who feels they have been underpaid NMW should contact the Acas helpline on 0300 123 1100. HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) reviews all complaints that are referred to them.</p><p> </p><p>Employers who pay workers less than the minimum wage not only have to pay arrears of wages at current minimum wage rates but also face financial penalties of up to £20,000 per underpaid worker. A further increase in penalties will come into force in April 2016 and will increase the penalty percentage from 100% to 200% of the underpayments owed to each worker, up to the existing maximum.</p><p> </p><p>In 2014/15, HMRC issued 705 penalties totalling £934,660.
