The Wales Audit Office was left with a positive impression of the Welsh Revenue Authority, judging by their report on tax devolution in Wales (pdf).
Auditors concluded that the Welsh Revenue Authority – which was established to oversee and collect taxes devolved to Wales since 2017 (landfill duty, stamp duty, Welsh rates of income tax) – was “operating effectively”. The cost of establishing the body was also met within the assigned budget, with no over-runs.
However, the Auditor General also concluded that the cost of implementing the Welsh rate of income tax was yet to be finalised.
