Make your views on a tourism tax heard in Scottish Government consultation

Fri 23 Nov 18

At the Scottish Tourism Alliance Autumn Conference, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced that the Scottish Government would be launching a nationwide consultation into the potential impacts of a tourism tax.

A ‘national discussion’ has been launched today to offer all stakeholders the opportunity to share their views and evidence for and against a tourism tax.

Events are taking place across Scotland where interested parties can share their views and the Scottish Government is also inviting stakeholders to submit their position papers and comments.

The Scottish Government has outlined the aims of the consultation and prepared a paper to help structure the events and the wider discussion.

Stakeholders unable to attend the events are invited to submit position papers on the national discussion questions. Business associations, DMOs and other groups involved in the visitor economy can submit their comments to the tourism discussion mailbox, [email protected]

Please take the opportunity to make your views heard on what has become the biggest issue our industry is facing.
