The ASSC shared proposals with MSPs, as well as Scottish Government Cabinet Secretaries/Ministers, to pause the implementation of short-term let regulations in light of the cost of living crisis.
We welcomed that Scottish Ministers were keen to explore all areas of recent and proposed devolved regulation on Scottish businesses as well as any financial costs that companies may be asked for around such things as licensing, certification etc.
We encouraged Ministers to meaningfully explore if there was scope to consider how any of these regulatory impacts could be moderated to try and help reduce the burden on business over the short-term and during the current cost crisis.
