Scottish Rate of Income Tax in AccountEdge Plus

ArticleID: 2025208         Last Updated: 7 December 2015


The Scottish rate of Income Tax will start on 6 April 2016.

AccountEdge Plus 2016 (scheduled for release in late March 2016) will include the new Scottish income tax rates.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will identify who’ll be a Scottish taxpayer. Employers and pension providers don’t need to decide this and should only use a Scottish tax code if HMRC tell them to. If your employee or pension scheme member disagrees with their tax code ask them to read the guidance on the Scottish rate of Income Tax before contacting HMRC.

You won’t need to change how you report or make payments for Income Tax to HMRC other than to apply the Scottish rate of Income Tax code to your Scottish taxpayer employees.
