Scottish Income Tax Rates and Bands

Scottish income tax applies to non-savings and non-divdend income. Reforms to the Scottish tax system led to a new Advanced band of income tax coming into force from 6 April 2024, meaning the country moves further away from the set up in the rest of the UK. The new rates and thresholds from April 2024 look like this.

Tax rate Income thresholds
Personal allowance 0% Up to £12,570
Starter Rate 19% £12,571 to £14,876
Basic Rate 20% £14,877 to £26,561
Intermediate Rate 21% £26,562 to £42,662
Higher Rate 42% £43,663 to £75,000
Advanced Rate 45% £75,001 to £125,140
