Visitor Levy (Scotland) Bill: equality impact assessment

The results of the equality impact assessment (EQIA) undertaken in respect of the Visitor Levy (Scotland) Bill.

Summary of aims and desired outcomes of Policy

The Visitor Levy Bill will give local authorities a discretionary power to apply a visitor levy on overnight visitor stays in accommodation in all or parts of their area. This will be a discretionary power, for a local authority to use if it chooses to do so for all or part of their area. The proceeds raised from a VL will be able to be used for developing, supporting and sustaining facilities and services which are substantially for or used by those visiting the area for leisure purposes.
