Welsh Waste Tax

More Welsh devolution means more control of taxes, which if it is done right can have an impact on our environment – so now’s the chance to influence how it is done.

More Welsh devolution means more control of taxes, which if it is done right can have an impact on our environment – so now’s the chance to influence how it is done.

From April 2018, Wales will have responsibility for two devolved taxes and Finance and Government Business Minister Jane Hutt is asking people across Wales to engage in a conversation and share their views on the shape of future Welsh tax arrangements.

This is important for Welsh construction as one of the new taxes has an impact on waste – specifically landfill.

Stamp Duty Land Tax and Landfill Tax will be devolved to Wales from April 2018.  They will be replaced by two new taxes - Land Transaction Tax (LTT) and Landfill Disposals Tax (LDT).

Views are being encouraged on the vision and values of the soon-to-be established Welsh Revenue Authority (WRA), which will collect and manage Welsh Taxes and on a Taxpayers’ Charter for Wales. The Minister has launched her ‘Welsh Taxes: A Conversation engagement programme invited views on the soon-to-be established Welsh Revenue Authority (WRA) and on a Taxpayers’ Charter for Wales. 

You can take part in an Welsh Revenue Authority and Taxpayers’ Charter survey and respond to the Minister’s invitation by completing this and sharing your views on the Welsh Revenue Authority and Taxpayers’ Charter.
