Aggregates Tax and Devolved Taxes Administration (Scotland) Bill: business and regulatory impact assessment

Business and regulatory impact assessment (BRIA) for the Aggregates Tax and Devolved Taxes Administration (Scotland) Bill.

Enforcement, sanctions, and monitoring

Revenue Scotland will have powers in relation to the collection and management of SAT and the RSTPA 2014 provides for its general functions.

The RSTPA 2014 sets out the tax administration framework that underpins all devolved taxes in Scotland, along with the powers and duties of taxpayers and Revenue Scotland. It also outlines the investigatory powers of Revenue Scotland, the process for issuing penalties in respect of non-compliant behaviour and provisions for debt enforcement.

In addition, the Scottish Tax Tribunals are in place to hear appeals against appealable decisions made by Revenue Scotland related to the fully devolved taxes.

The Scottish Government will work with Revenue Scotland to review the effectiveness of SAT by monitoring information collected from tax returns.
