To ask the Scottish Government whether businesses that are not connected to the water network are routinely exempt from water and sewage charges, and for what reason charges can be imposed.
Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 28 November 2018
Businesses are liable for water, sewerage and drainage charges when the property benefits from these services. A business will not be liable for charges only if the property has no connection to any services.
