Scottish Parliment

The Scottish Licensed Trade Association is the only organisation which represents all sectors of the licensed trade and is seen by many as the ‘voice’ of the pub trade in Scotland.

The Association is consulted by Governments, both at Westminster and Holyrood;  National Boards;  and the Media when the interests of the trade are under consideration.   Members are also represented at local government level through our network of Local and Regional Trade Associations. The Scottish Licensed Trade Association continues to work hard to represent our members’ views on an extensive range of issues including:

  • All things COVID and the survival of the On-Trade
  • City and Town Centre Regeneration
  • Deposit Return Scheme
  • Tenancy Agreements
  • Net Zero Carbon Emissions
  • Commercial Rates Reform
  • Minimum Pricing
  • Long Live The Local
  • Transient Visitor Levy
  • Out of Home Eateries
  • VAT reduction for Tourism and Hospitality
  • Social Responsibility
  • Importance of Rural Pubs and Hotels
