The Scottish Government has launched a 90 day consultation on Transient Visitor Levy, often referred to as Tourist Tax.
Tourist Tax Consultation
The Scottish Government launched its Transient Visitor Levy Consultation today seeking views on the principles of a local discretionary transient visitor levy or tourist tax.
We would urge all businesses who benefit from tourism activity to share your views via the Scottish Government Consultation Hub - the introduction of a tourism tax has the potential to negatively impact our industry in a number of ways.
Please visit our ‘What might a tourist tax mean for you?’ article on the STA website here
NB This is a national consultation and fully inpendent of the Highland Council consultation currently underway.
