  • Date lodged: 1 November 2023

To ask the Scottish Government what modelling it has undertaken of any wider economic impact of the introduction of a Building Safety Levy.


Revenues from the UK Government’s Building Safety Levy in England will be small in relation to UK GDP and so the Levy is not expected to have any significant macroeconomic impact. As set out in the 2023-24 Programme for Government, the Scottish Government intends for a devolved Building Safety Levy to apply in equivalence to the Levy that is being introduced in England and so it does not expect the macroeconomic impact to be materially different in Scotland.
