Setting the Welsh Income Tax rate

Welsh Income Tax Rates for 2019-20 were announced by The National Assembly for Wales at their first budget on 2 October 2018.

In a statement in December 2019, confirmed by the Welsh minister for finance on 7 January 2020, it was announced that Welsh income tax rates would remain unchanged for 2020-21.

The rate is calculated in two stages:

  • First, the basic, higher and additional UK rates will each be reduced by 10% to 10%, 30% and 35% respectively.  
  • Secondly, the Welsh Assembly will set a single rate that will be applied to each of the reduced rates above to give the Welsh rate.

If the rate is changed for future tax rates this would have an impact on the Welsh income tax rates as follows:

If the Welsh rate is set at:

8%

10%

12%

Welsh basic rate will be

 18%

 20%

22%

Welsh higher rate will be

 38%

40%

 42%

Welsh additional rate will be

 43%

 45%
