The full Welsh budget for 2020/21 has been fully approved by the Welsh Assembly and has confirmed there will be no change in Welsh income tax under the Welsh Rate of Income Tax (WRIT) powers which commence in April 2019. As a result of this ratification, the actual Welsh Rates of Income Tax are:

Welsh rate for the basic rate of income tax is 10p

Welsh rate for the higher rate of income tax is 10p

Welsh rate for the additional rate of income tax is 10p

This therefore confirms that Welsh resident employees continue to pay the same rate of income tax based on the same thresholds announced for England and Wales and further confirmed in the last week in HMRC’s Rates and Thresholds.

The expectation going forward was originally no change would be seen during the current Welsh Assembly which will be in place until May 21 however further change in 2021/22 cannot be ruled out.

"I have used The Learn Centre on a number of occasions and have found it provides a great platform to gain the knowledge required to carry out my job. I started off with the Payroll Technician course and this in-depth learning gave me a great foundation of payroll knowledge to build upon and give me the confidence to progress up the career ladder, well worth it and would certainly recommend, no matter what level you are at there will be a course/qualification that can help you."
