THE county’s biggest business organisation has joined calls for the Scottish Government to abandon plans for a so-called ‘Amazon tax’.

The CBI said plans to let councils levy a new charge on out-of-town stores and online retailer warehouses, such as those of Amazon, would deter investment and damage the economy.

The organisation, whose members employ 500,000 Scots, also said the levy would not work as a “unilateral” measure in the global drive to tax the digital economy more effectively.
