S5O-01283: Bill Bowman (North East Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 13 September 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what assurance it can give businesses in the north east that they will not be financially disadvantaged by any change to the 12.5% business rate cap.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 21 September 2017

The additional 12.5% real terms cap on 2018-19 rates increases will provide continuing support to offices in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire and all but the very largest hospitality properties across the country, as I set out in my statement to Parliament on 12 September.
