Scottish Retail Consortium responds to the Commission on Local Tax Reform

LONDON, 2015-6-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — The SRC has submitted a written response to the Commission on Local Tax Reform. The SRC is ‘open’ to council tax being replaced or reformed but wants to see any major changes or alternative system underpinned by support for consumer confidence and subject to a robust and convincing cost benefit analysis. The SRC submission also highlights how revenues from business rates have been picking up an ever large proportion of local authority budgets compared to receipts from council tax.
