‘Welsh rates of income tax’

Welsh rates of income tax

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

From April 2019, Welsh resident taxpayers will be subject to the new Welsh rates of income tax.

Welsh resident employees could be taxed at different rates to their English resident colleagues based on information held by HMRC. This will apply, even if the Welsh resident employee works in England.

It is the responsibility of the individual taxpayer to ensure HMRC holds correct contact details and is informed of any change in address. Employees or pension recipients deemed to be Welsh resident will be given tax codes starting with a C. The employer or pension provider is not responsible for deciding an individual’s Welsh taxpayer status.

Self-employed individuals will be required to disclose their country of residence on their Self Assessment tax return.

If you are an employer, please encourage your employees to check if HMRC holds their correct contact details using their personal tax account Any changes of address can be managed through this facility.
