Scottish Budget - New income tax rates

Scotland’s new system of income tax rates and bands has come into force.  The new Scottish system adds a 19% "starter" rate for those on low incomes, as well as a 21% rate for those who earn above the median salary. It also adds a penny to the higher and top rates, bringing them to 41% and 46%.

Previously, Holyrood had matched the structure of the tax system in the rest of the UK, with three bands - a basic rate at 20%, a higher rate at 40% and a 45% top rate.
