Scottish Parliament consultation

printer Mail

The CIOT has commented on the Scottish Parliament consultation ‘What matters to you?’ focusing on tax issues that Scottish Parliamentary committees should consider between 2021 and 2026 and that it believes will help deliver a devolved tax system that is sustainable and fit for purpose:

–        The decision-making and parliamentary oversight of the devolved tax powers needs to be strengthened. This could include a formalised slot in the Parliamentary timetable for Scottish taxes and a focus on completion of the work of the Devolved Taxes Legislation Working Group.

–        A more strategic approach to the process of tax-policy making, for both new and existing taxes. This could include wider and early consultation and close co-operation with all nations of the UK, specifically in the case of environmental taxes.

–        Better access for voters to information to help them better understand Holyrood’s tax powers, to help hold their representatives to account.
