This summary looks in more detail at the impact of the revaluation on the hospitality sector in Scotland. We have created a bespoke definition of hospitality using data from the valuation roll which includes all businesses matching the description of the food and accommodation services sector. This analysis was originally published as part of the collaborative project Serving the Future.
Serving the Future is a three-year action research project working with hospitality employers and workers. The project seeks to understand, reduce and prevent in-work poverty and identify changes that could be made within the hospitality sector. By working directly with employers and people with experience of low-paid work, the project is taking a variety of approaches to identify changes that can take place at an organisational level as well as necessary policy or systems-wide changes that are required across Scotland.
