SCC welcome extension of Non-Domestic Rates Reliefs


19th February 2021

Responding to the Scottish Budget update delivered by the Cabinet Secretary for Finance Kate Forbes MSP, Dr Liz Cameron OBE, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

“The Finance Secretary committed to extending non-domestic rates relief if she had the budget to do so, so we welcome this confirmation. This will provide much-needed relief to the retail, hospitality, leisure and aviation sectors who have been devasted by the effects of coronavirus restrictions.

“We would further urge the Cabinet Secretary to ensure that safeguarding jobs and the economy will continue to be high on the list of considerations as she sets out further priorities for the £1.1 billion in additional COVID-19 funding recently allocated from the UK Treasury.’’
