S5W-06353: Mike Rumbles (North East Scotland)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 19 January 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how the proposed increase in business rates compares with each of the other revaluations since 1999.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 31 January 2017

We are supporting business by not insisting on a revenue-neutral revaluation which would have meant a higher poundage for Scotland. The poundage will decrease by 3.7% in 2017-18.
