These taxes will contribute funding of around £2.5 billion annually for Welsh public services..

The Welsh Revenue Authority (WRA) collects and manages land transaction tax and landfill disposals tax.

HMRC will continue to collect income tax paid by people living in Wales as one payment.

The Tax Collection and Management (Wales) Act 2016 provides us with the powers to collect and manage fully-devolved Welsh taxes.

The Wales Act 2014 and Wales Act 2017 provide for the partial devolution of Income Tax.
