Published at 13:14 PM on 19 September 2014

Responding to the outcome of the Scottish referendum, Lindsay Gardiner, regional leader at PwC in Scotland, said:

After 23 months of debates and discussions, the outcome on Scotland’s future has been decided, with the nation opting to remain part of the UK.

“It’s clear that the Scottish referendum has also put decentralisation on the political and regional agenda as never before and the UK regions are likely to become more involved.

“PwC remains committed to supporting the Scottish business community and Scottish Government as, together, we take the next steps towards gaining greater devolution and enhanced powersto set and deliver fiscal policy.

“We should also remember that, regardless of the additional devolution negotiations which will begin in earnest, the Scotland Act is set to be fully implemented by March 2016. 

"We are now entering a new era of opportunity for Scotland, and the UK regions, and we are ready to play our part.”
