From 1st May, we are offering a 25% discount on membership subscriptions and marketing packages, as well as no Joining Fee, when you join the Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers.

The ASSC is now undertaking more and more activities that support the self-catering sector in Scotland:

  • We are actively working with the Rates Assessors and the Barclay Review to ensure that Business Rates are reformed to fit the industry’s requirements.
  • We are working with Local Authorities on a Code of Practice for short-term let operators, to prevent the introduction of stifling new regulations or restrictions.
  • We are engaged with the Scottish Government on a study into short-term lettingin Scotland and the effect of the collaborative economy on the traditional sector and whether the sector requires increased regulation.
  • We are actively working to prevent Energy Performance Certificates becoming a requirement for holiday homes.
  • We are working with trade associations throughout Europe to ensure that our sector is not negatively impacted by increased regulation or threatened by the advancements of the online booking platforms.
  • We have just published an economic impact study, which reinforces the huge benefit the self-catering sector brings to the Scottish economy.

We rely on our membership to support this work, which benefits each and everyone who operates a self-catering business in Scotland, whatever happens.

In addition to our representative work, we are continually increasing Member benefits, including trade supplier discounts, increased advice and support, and marketing potential.

The ASSC offers value for money and options to fit different requirements:

  • Membership of the ASSC is only £90 + VAT.
  • The marketing package is an add-on, costing just £62 + VAT, plus £13.50 per unit operated. Additional marketing opportunities are available.

To join, please go to and click on the Join Today button, fill in the form but don’t pay anything. We will issue an invoice waiving the Joining Fee and deducting 25% from your subscription fee.

Your subscription will give you Membership until the end of January 2018.

If you would like any more information, please email our Membership Secretary, Eleanor McBain, call 01462 894483.
