S5W-09065: Dean Lockhart (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 27 April 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how much revenue raised by the business rates incentivisation scheme was retained by each local authority area in each of the last three financial years.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 11 May 2017

The additional non-domestic rates raised and retained by individual local authorities in the last three relevant financial years, as a result of the business rates incentivisation scheme, are set out in the following table. The 2012-13 sums were retained for that year only under the original scheme. Following a review no revised scheme was agreed in time for operation in 2013-14 but was subsequently introduced from 1 April 2014. The figures for both 2014-15 and 2015-16 were retained each year until the next non domestic rates revaluation date which was 1 April 2017.

Details of the sums to be retained for 2016-17 will be confirmed following receipt of final audited returns from local authorities later this year.
