Work out if you'll pay Welsh Income Tax

Find out whether you'll be a Welsh taxpayer if you move to or from Wales, have more than one home or have no home.


If you live in one place during a tax year and its in Wales youll be a Welsh taxpayer and will pay Welsh rates of Income Tax from 6 April 2019. Its paid to the Welsh Government.

If you live anywhere else in the UK you will not be a Welsh taxpayer.

Your situation might be different if you:

  • move to or from Wales during the year
  • have more than one home at the same time
  • have nowhere you can identify as your home

You can only be a Welsh taxpayer if youre resident in the UK for tax purposes.

If you move to a new address you must tell HMRC so they can make sure you have the right tax code. Your employer cannot do this.
