The Welsh Revenue Authority (WRA) is committed to making transparency and accountability to the public a fundamental principle of how it operates as an organisation.

The Freedom of Information Act encourages public authorities to make as much information as possible available to the public proactively. We do this by publishing the data that people need to understand who we are, what we spend and what we achieve.

Under the act, we are required to adopt a publication scheme which contains information we routinely make available. We ensure that information is published in accordance with the scheme. Available information is grouped under the following ‘classes of information’.

Who we are and what we do

Organisational information, biographies and contacts

Commitments

The Welsh Revenue Authority’s commitments are:

  • to make transparency a part of how we operate

  • to make datasets available for re-use, and in a re-usable format where reasonable and practical
  • to keep our data under review, to examine and improve the amount and frequency of data released into the public domain
  • to link all datasets published on our web pages

We won’t publish information that is:

  • protected taxpayer information

Requesting Information, giving feedback and further information

We will make a significant amount of information available under our scheme. The benefits are that it makes information easily accessible and without charge. This means that, in many cases, the information you are looking for will already be available and there will be no need for you to make a formal request under the act.

You can email a request including the words ‘publication scheme’ in the subject heading. There is no charge for information which is provided electronically.

If you ask for information available on our website to be provided in paper format it may be necessary to make a charge. Each case is considered separately. For example, if a large amount of photocopying is required, or if the cost of postage of a large volume of paperwork is very high.

Most of the information included in our scheme will be current. However, for certain classes of information, it may be necessary to publish the information retrospectively.

Information will not be available through the publication scheme indefinitely. We are committed to providing the public with as much information as is practically possible. It is important that the information we provide is relevant and up to date.

We welcome your feedback on our progress and your suggestions for data that you would like us make available. The Freedom of Information Act encourages public authorities to make as much information as possible available to the public proactively.
