Scottish tax rates

February 25, 2016

Income tax rates for employees who are subject to the Scottish Rate of Income Tax (SRIT) are maintained on the Payroll - Utilities - Scottish Tax form. The bandwidths for SRIT are the same as the rest of the UK.





'Scottish Taxpayer' employee option
An option (relevant from the 2016-17 tax year) that indicates that the employee is subject to the Scottish Rate of Income Tax (SRIT). The tax regime is included in the Full Payment Submission (FPS) for each pay period. Scottish tax codes are prefixed with 'S' in the FPS and on printed documents (P45, P60 and so on).
In Opera you don't enter the 'S' in the Tax Code box - that is added 'in the background' when the Scottish Taxpayer option is selected.
A message is displayed when the option is selected to warn that the SRIT rate will apply for the employee.







Global update of the 'Scottish Taxpayer' option using the Tax Code Changes form
To make it easier to change the Scottish Taxpayer setting specifically and tax codes in general, a facility has been added to the Tax Code Changes form to globally update the following:

  • The 'Scottish Taxpayer' or 'Rest of the UK' options

  • Tax code

  • The Week1/Month1 option.

You can select employees to update using either the employee reference or department. You can view a report before the employee's details are changed.
