How the Scottish Residency Tax affects your take home salary

For the tax year 2017/18 if you're a Scottish resident you’ll pay the Scottish Income Tax.

This is a bit different from the rest of the UK.

That’s because the Scottish parliament voted to keep the higher tax brackets from £43000.

This has risen to £45000 in the rest of the UK.

Who is a Scottish Taxpayer?

Only Scottish taxpayers pay the Scottish income tax rate.

HMRC will determine whether or not you’re a Scottish taxpayer based on where your main place of residence is.
