SCC co-signs letter calling for business rate surtax rethink

Date Posted: 7 Feb, 2024

SCC alongside 16 business representative groups have jointly written to the Scottish Government’s Deputy First Minister & Finance Secretary, Shona Robison MSP, to voice alarm at the Scottish Government’s consideration of a new business rate surtax and what it means for wider tax policy towards commerce.

The sixteen organisations represent a broad cross section of Scottish industry and commerce. The collective call comes ahead of the expected Stage 1 debate and vote on the Scottish Budget at Holyrood later this week.
