|FSB: Let Revenue Scotland collect business rates and council tax|
|Wednesday, 18 March 2015|
Devolved taxes don’t have to be taxing if the country sets up better revenue systems, the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) in Scotland has said. The small business lobby group has called for the Scottish Government to pass the collection of council tax and business rates onto new tax body, Revenue Scotland, and has warned that the administrative impact of additional fiscal devolution must be borne by tax authorities and not taxpayers.
As the Chancellor prepares to unveil his final Budget of this parliament, the FSB says it is vital that the additional tax powers coming to Scotland place no additional reporting burden on small enterprises. The business group is also arguing that, over and above the string of measures it has recommended to improve the Scottish business rates system, there is now no reason for the Scottish Government not to undertake a root-and-branch review of the tax, run in parallel to the one planned for England.
