Modernising the Water Industry's Use of Rateable Value to Charge Non-Households for Water and Sewerage Services

This paper seeks to obtain views on charging for water and sewerage services with reference to rateable value.

Summary And Next Steps

The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring that charges payable by customers recover the costs incurred by Scottish Water of providing services. This paper has set out, and seeks views on, the way in which the industry should introduce the use of the Rateable Value most recently assigned by the Assessor as the basis of calculating its Rateable Value based charges at non-household premises.

It requests your views by 23 September 2016. The new arrangements will be confirmed by winter 2016.
