Make your views heard on the tourist tax

Licensees have until December 2nd 2019 to add their views to a Scottish Government consultation on the tourist tax.

Ministers are seeking input that will help shape its proposed tourist tax legislation (transient visitor levy), eventually leading to a law that will set out the powers local authorities will have to implement it.

Despite expressing disappointment in the proposed implementation of such a tax, the Scottish Tourism Alliance has thrown its weight behind the consultation.

Marc Crothall, Chief Executive of the Scottish Tourism Alliance (STA) said,“The STA is disappointed that the Scottish Government’s plans around the introduction of a tourist tax in Scotland were part of the recent Programme for Government, however we welcome the launch of the national consultation today and will urge our members, the wider industry and others who benefit from tourism activity to share their views on shaping the framework for the introduction of this tax.”
