To ask the Scottish Government what value of rates relief has been given to arms-length external organisations in each of the last five years.
Answered by: Derek Mackay 31 October 2017
The Scottish Government does not hold data on the amount of relief provided to Arm’s Length External Organisations (ALEOs) for the past five years. Analysis undertaken for the Barclay Review of Non-Domestic Rates indicated ALEOs received around £45m of relief in 2015-16.
