Non Domestic Rates (Scotland) Bill – Call for Written Evidence

April 15, 2019

The Local Government and Communities Committee have called for written evidence as part of its Stage 1 scrutiny of the Non-Domestic Rates (Scotland) Bill, introduced to parliament by Scottish Government on 25 March 2019.

The Local Government and Communities Committee would like to hear your views on the Non-Domestic Rates (Scotland) Bill.  Organisations and individuals are invited to submit written evidence to the Committee setting out their views on the Non-Domestic Rates (Scotland) Bill.  These views will then inform the Committee’s scrutiny of the Bill.  The call for written evidence closes on Thursday 30 May 2019.

The Bill delivers most of the recommendations of the Barclay Review of non-domestic rates that were considered to require primary legislation and the Scottish Government has explained that the Bill’s main policy objectives are to deliver a non-domestic rates system designed to better support business growth and long-term investment and reflect changing marketplaces, improve ratepayers’ experience of the ratings system and administation of the system and increase fairness and ensure a level playing field amongst ratepayers by reforming rate reliefs and tackling known avoidance measures.

Please follow this link to the Bill and any accompanying documents. https://www.parliament.scot/parliamentarybusiness/Bills/111337.aspx
