Date lodged: 25 September 2017
To ask the Scottish Government, further to the statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Constitution on 12 September 2017 (Official Report, c. 49), how much the extension of Fresh Start will cost in each of the next four years, and how many properties it expects will apply.
Answered by: Derek Mackay 23 October 2017
It is estimated that that the extension of the fresh start relief will cost around £2 million per year. More detail on this and the other measures announced in my statement to Parliament on 12 September 2017 will be published in an implementation plan by the end of this year.
