Welsh Minister welcomes Welsh Revenue Authority’s Corporate Plan
The Welsh Revenue Authority (WRA) yesterday (14 May) published its second Corporate Plan, following approval by the Minister for Finance and Trefnydd.
The Corporate Plan (2019-22) outlines a new purpose statement, strategic objectives and performance measures for the tax authority. Together, these will help the WRA continue its work in raising revenue to support services across Wales.
The WRA started collecting and managing two devolved Welsh taxes on 1 April 2018. The introduction of the taxes, land transaction tax and landfill disposals tax, resulted in Wales gaining the first specifically Welsh taxes in almost 800 years.
Rebecca Evans, Minister for Finance, yesterday said:
I’m really pleased with the approach the WRA is taking to help us in our ambition to create a fairer tax system that meets the unique needs of Wales.
Kathryn Bishop, Chair of the WRA, yesterday said:
We recognise our organisational responsibility for raising revenue on behalf of Welsh Government, to be invested in services in communities across Wales.
Working closely with our partners and our people, we have co-created our Corporate Plan setting out how we will support the delivery of a fair tax system in Wales for years to come.
Dyfed Alsop, Chief Executive of the WRA, yesterday said:
During our first year, we introduced a two-way approach to administering tax to help people to pay the right tax at the right time. This important work remains a priority for us moving forward.
As we look ahead, I would like to recognise the scale of support and expertise we’ve received from others to date. Working together is at the heart of what we do, and we welcome this ongoing support as we continue our work in serving Wales.
The Welsh Revenue Authority’s Corporate Plan (2019-22) is available here.
