S5W-11510: Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton)

Scottish Labour

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 many non-domestic rates overpayments have there been in each year since 1999 and what the average time has been to refund these, broken down by local authority.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 23 October 2017

The Scottish Government does not hold this information. The administrative processes in relation to non-domestic rates overpayments is entirely the responsibility of local authorities.
