FIRMS IN DUNDEE BENEFIT FROM OVER £6 MILLION IN BUSINESS RATES SUPPORT
The Scottish Government’s Small Business Bonus Scheme provided over £6 million of support for businesses across Dundee in 2017/18 – a 19.8% rise on the previous year.
The Small Business Bonus Scheme, delivered by the SNP in 2008/09, supports local firms by reducing their rates liability or taking firms out of business rates altogether.
With businesses across Scotland receiving a total support relief of over £240 million, MSP for Dundee City East, Shona Robison, has said the Scottish Government’s commitment to local jobs and communities across Dundee is clear.
Commenting, Shona Robison said:
“These figures prove the success of the Small Business Bonus Scheme for firms across Dundee.
“Businesses in Dundee have benefitted from a massive £6 million in rates support, providing stability for local jobs and communities and giving firms that valuable headroom to grow and thrive.
“While Labour and the Tories have no credible plans between them, the SNP is getting on with the job – creating a better business environment in Dundee, boosting employment and creating a business environment where local companies can flourish.”
