(I) only at the standard rate for the taxation year covered by the agreement and the instruction in the employer`s report is to identify workers on the basis of their tax identification number; That is, Scottish taxpayers are identified by a prefix S and Welsh taxpayers by a prefix C (Cymru). This means that employers must monitor the availability of all benefits in kind intended for the admission of PPE according to the jurisdiction from the beginning of each fiscal year and identify all workers in the area by tax band. For each jurisdiction, different PSA1 forms are available and must be completed online. Prior to the partial transfer of income tax to Scotland in April 2016, no individual calculation or precise figure was needed – suffice it, for example, to say that a benefit of £300,000 had been granted and that around 20% of the beneficiaries were higher rate taxpayers, the rest being the base rate. This was a relatively simple way for employers to pay on what was due and proved to be a success in generating income. If an employer is certain that it does not have employees who are Scottish or Welsh taxpayers (see below), this remains the case. As regards the partial transfer of income tax to Scotland, Scotland now has powers over Scottish income tax rates and bands, under the Scotland Act 1998, as amended by the Scotland Act 2016. The Wales Act 2014 provides for powers over Welsh income tax rates. Scottish and Welsh income tax are levied on income defined as income „not spared, not eligible for dividends“. Overall, this includes income from work, profits from self-employment, pension income and income from property received by persons classified as Scottish or Welsh taxable persons in a tax year. (iv) any other matter which has been agreed by the Returned Commissions and the employer as relevant with regard to the qualifying remuneration covered by the Agreement.
At the request of an employer, income commissioners may enter into an agreement with (i) the total amount of eligible remuneration covered by the Income Tax Agreement, in Wales the Welsh income tax rate applies from 2019/20, but it is no different from that of the rest of the UK. HmRC, however, stated in its October 2019 Employer Bulletin that a separate calculation for Welsh taxpayers must be established in the same way that employers must already do for Scottish taxpayers. If you don`t have a PSA yet and miss that deadline, it`s possible to do voluntary advertising and counting for items you would otherwise have included in PPE. . . .
