Response to GERS Queries - Crown Estates revenue

Q: What is the value attributed to Scotland per person of revenue raised from the Crown Estates?

A: Information on the Crown Estate’s revenue in 2016-17 is set out in their Annual Report 2015-16, available at:

As shown on page 1, the Crown Estate’s net revenue profit prior to depreciation was £329 million in 2016-17. In GERS Scotland is apportioned a share of this revenue in line with the Crown Estate in Scotland's share of UK gross surplus, also on page 1.  In 2016-17 this share was 3.9%, or approximately £13 million. This is equivalent to approximately £2 per person, given Scotland’s population of 5.3 million people.
