Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 27 June 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how much it has raised from non-local taxation in each the last five years.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 24 July 2017

For the period 2012-13 to 2014-15 inclusive, the Scottish Government did not raise any revenue from fully devolved taxes though, from April 2015, revenue has been raised from two fully devolved taxes, Land and Buildings Transaction Tax and Scottish Landfill Tax.

The amount raised from the two fully devolved taxes in 2015-16 was £572 million as published in Revenue Scotland's 2015-16 Devolved Taxes Account which can be accessed here: https://www.revenue.scot/sites/default/files/Revenue%20Scotland%20-%20Annual%20Report%20-%20Devolved%20taxes%20August%202016%20-%20FINAL%20PDF.pdf

The 2016-17 provisional outturn statement presented to Parliament on 22 June 2017 set out that the provisional amount raised from the fully devolved taxes in 2016-17 was £633 million. Revenue Scotland will be publishing its full outturn figures in the 2016-17 Devolved Taxes Account in September.
