S5W-15802: Bill Bowman (North East Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 4 April 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-15289 by Derek Mackay on 21 March 2018, in light of the cabinet secretary confirming that ministers have accepted the Barclay Review’s recommendation regarding increasing the frequency of revaluations to once every three years, whether it will implement this as soon as possible, as recommended by the review.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 17 April 2018

Paragraph 4.15 of the Barclay review report is clear that, in order for the wide ranging reforms to improve administration of the rating and valuation appeals system to be delivered, 2022 is the earliest possible date that the next revaluation can take place in Scotland before moving to three yearly revaluations thereafter.
