    Abstract

    The Scottish Fiscal Commission (SFC) is the independent fiscal institution for Scotland and was established on 1st April 2017 under the Scottish Fiscal Commission (2016) Act. The Commission is responsible for producing independent and official forecasts of Scottish GDP, devolved tax receipts and devolved demand-led social security expenditure, and will publish our first independent and official forecasts to inform the next Scottish Budget later in 2017.
