Fairness for Scottish Hospitality Accommodation Sector

Struggling guest houses, B&Bs, and self-catering businesses in Scotland are being denied the £6000 top-up grant given to other business types of exactly the same non-domestic rateable value in Hospitality, Retail, and Leisure, with no equal replacement funding in place. This is discrimination against a whole sector of our economy, vital to the tourism industry, particularly in rural areas across the entire country and we want this remedied.  The Ayrshire Bed&Breakfast Association have set up a petition to the Scottish Parliament which you can find here.  Please help us by signing the petition and spread the word by sharing on your social media accounts. Thank you.
