Released 29 November 2019

In written evidence to a Scottish Government consultation on proposals to give councils the power to introduce a transient visitor levy, the Institute has called on the Scottish Government and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) to ensure that the potential costs associated with administering and policing the levy were included in any future budget negotiations.
