Air Departure Tax 22/12/2016 The Air Departure Tax (Scotland) Bill, replacing Air Passenger Duty in Scotland, has been formally introduced to the Scottish Parliament.

Air Departure Tax

The Air Departure Tax (Scotland) Bill, replacing Air Passenger Duty (APD) in Scotland, has been formally introduced to the Scottish Parliament.

According to the Scottish Government, the name was changed to Air Departure Tax as it better reflects the general scope of the tax, which is charged on passengers departing by air from Scottish airports. It also ensures that there is no confusion with Air Passenger Duty, which will continue to operate in the rest of the UK after 1st April 2018.

The Bill will mean the Scottish Government can progress plans to reduce the overall burden of the new tax by 50% from April 2018. The tax will then be abolished entirely when finances allow.

The Bill will also set out that Revenue Scotland will be the authority responsible for the collection and management of the tax, after the existing APD regime no longer applies in Scotland.
