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 2020-21. Based on data and forecasts in the UK Spring Statement 2019.

This model has been produced in partnership with researchers from the Wales Fiscal Analysis team at Cardiff University’s Wales Governance Centre, using modelling from their report Trends in the Welsh Income Tax base: an update, April 2019.

Adjust the sliders to vary the income tax rates and behavioural changes and see the effects on the Welsh Government's income tax revenue. Enter your annual taxable income to see how much you pay the Welsh and UK Governments and where you lie in the Welsh income distribution.
