Business rates: validator

The ODI Leeds Open Data Collaboration group are exploring local council Business Rates data and we've defined a common format for sharing Business Rates data. This validator lets you check how well a CSV file matches that format. If you are a Local Authority add the URL of your CSV file to our index, send a pull request, and we'll update your score on the status page.
