Tax advice

Expert advice and engagement has been established to inform tax policy development, including the Minister for Finance and Trefnydd's Tax Advisory Group.

Tax principles

Welsh taxes should:

  • raise revenue to fund public services as fairly as possible
  • deliver Welsh Government policy objectives, in particular supporting jobs and growth
  • be clear, stable and simple
  • be developed through collaboration and involvement
  • contribute directly to the Well Being of Future Generations Act goal of creating a more equal Wales.

The Tax Policy work plan 2018 outlines the Welsh Government’s priorities for the year. The Welsh Tax Policy Report 2018 outlines progress towards the 2018 work plan. It was published in October 2018 as part of the draft budget for 2019-20.
