Scot Lib Dems: SNP not done enough to protect businesses

Following the news that the Scottish Government has received business rate revaluation appeals relating to 11,368 properties, Scottish Liberal Democrat economy spokesperson Carolyn Caddick commented:

"The SNP Government has clearly not gone far enough in shielding new and upcoming businesses from dramatic rates rises. Businesses have appealed against almost £1 billion worth of business rates. With another month to go before the deadline for submitting appeals, businesses will be looking closely at their bills and the value of these challenges seems set to rise.

"Businesses across the country have been faced with gigantic rate increases this year that is putting their growth and jobs at risk."
