Scottish Government announces business rates relief to be extended for full year

22 Feb 2021


Scottish retail, hospitality, leisure and aviation businesses will not pay non-domestic rates throughout the next financial year, under plans announced by the Scottish Government’s Finance Secretary Kate Forbes.

The extension comes after a further £1.1bn of coronavirus support funding was promised by the UK Treasury.

The move builds on the three month rates relief extension announced in the Scottish Budget, and will be taken forward provided the Scottish Government receives the funding already assumed from the UK Budget on 3 March.
