Military personnel in Scotland protected from tax hikes


Thousands of troops set to be left out of pocket by tax rises recently announced by the Scottish Government will be protected by plans unveiled by Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson today (Thursday 19 July).


The plans will protect around 8,000 personnel who would otherwise be negatively affected by the income tax hikes. Personnel will be compensated with an annual payment to make sure that all troops, regardless of where they are deployed or where their families are based, will pay the same income tax.


Following the announcement of Scottish Government’s tax changes, in March Mr Williamson ordered work to start on how the Ministry of Defence would mitigate the impact, following concerns that the changes could result in Scotland becoming a less attractive place for military personnel to be posted to.
