Scotland vs England – A Taxpayer Comparison

The Institute of Charted Accountants Scotland (ICAS) has made an interesting and very useful comparison of the 2023/24 Scottish Tax Rates against those announced in the Scottish Budget of 19 December 2023, for 2024/25.

ICAS have also looked at the differences between a Scottish taxpayer and the rest of the UK.  Even at modest income levels (£50,000), there is at least a £1,500 differential.

An employee in Scotland earning £110,000 will take home less than someone in England, who earns £100,000.  One way or another, that £10,000 differential is purely tax.  In addition, for employees, the marginal rate of 69.5% extends all the way from £100,000 to £125,140.

With much still to be decided by voters, there is greater uncertainty in the short-term investment outlook. However, inflation remains on a declining path in the UK, US and Europe, while economic growth appears strong.

Global Market Commentary – May

Recent data has hinted at a divergence between the US and UK/EU economies, with signs of an economic slowdown in the States coinciding with Britain and Europe rebounding from a period of stagnant GDP growth. Having been neglected for several years post-Brexit, there is hope that UK stocks may finally prosper given a more favourable macroeconomic environment.
