Water Rates Exemption – Survey

Many local organisations in D & G have been adversely affected by the changes introduced to water rates exemption eligibility. This resulted in many non profit distributing organisations no longer being exempt and  charities with turnovers over £200k no longer being exempt. Many organisations in D & G lobbied and campaigned about the unintended consequences of this poorly thought through policy change. The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) is now part of a national review group set up by the Scottish Government to review the scheme. SCVO has a short survey and we urge all organisations that have been affected to complete the survey to better inform the review process. Please click to complete survey
