From 6 April 2019, income tax rates paid on non-savings, non-dividend (‘NSND’) income by Welsh taxpayers fell by 10p in the pound and were replaced by the Welsh Rates of Income Tax.

Keeping tax rates paid by Welsh taxpayers unchanged by setting a 10p rate in each band is forecasted to raise over £2 billion for the Welsh Government in 2021-22, based on data and OBR forecasts June 2021.

This model has been updated by Senedd Research based on original analysis produced in partnership with researchers from the Wales Fiscal Analysis team at Cardiff University’s Wales Governance Centre.
