The first new national Scottish taxes introduced by a Scottish Parliament in more than 300 years are being collected from today.
Scotland’s new tax authority, Revenue Scotland, is now accepting tax returns – making history as the first national administrator of solely Scottish taxes since 1707.
“Today is historic. For the first time in 300 years, with the launch of Revenue Scotland, Scotland is able to collect and manage some of our own taxes.”
Deputy First Minister John Swinney
A new facility in Larbert with a combined workforce of 100 people, of whom 95 are disabled people, has been officially opened by Deputy First Minister John Swinney.
The Scottish Government is firmly committed to equality for disabled people and are striving to create a Scotland that is fair and inclusive to all.
Scotland’s Economic Strategy sets out an overarching framework for a more competitive and a fairer Scotland and identifies four broad priority areas where our actions will be targeted to make a difference.
"We want to create a stable and balanced economy that is outward looking, confident, innovative, based on the core strengths of our people and supported by investment."
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon
