Business rates review
Finance Secretary responds to report publication.
Welcoming the publication of the Barclay Review of Non-Domestic Rates, Finance Secretary Derek Mackay said:
“This report offers recommendations for reform of the system to make it work better for ratepayers across Scotland while ensuring that the contribution they make to important local services is maintained.
“Ken and his team were tasked with finding ways to improve the current system, updating it so that it better supports business growth, encourages long term investment and enables businesses to better navigate fast-changing marketplaces.
“I know the review group have worked incredibly hard, spending more than a year engaging closely with the ratepayers across Scotland before compiling this report. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their substantial efforts.
“Having now received the Barclay Review, the Scottish Government will respond swiftly to its recommendations.”
