Tax in Scotland - A Comprehensive Guide

If you are living in Scotland or planning to move there, it is essential to have a good understanding of the country's tax system. The United Kingdom (UK) has a complex tax system that includes several types of taxes, such as income tax, value-added tax (VAT), and capital gains tax. These taxes are collected by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), the government agency responsible for tax collection.

The first £ 12,570.00 of your income is tax free (this is the standard personal exemption and is defined by a personal tax code for each individual taxpayer). Once an individuals personal allowance is exceeded, income tax is applied using specific tax rates and thresholds, the income tax rates for the 2023 tax year are as follows:
