The distributional effects of the UK government’s tax and welfare reforms in Wales: an update

Briefing note

This report is an updated analysis of the personal tax and benefit reforms implemented, or due to be implemented, by the UK’s coalition government from when it was elected in May 2010 up to and including April 2015. This includes those measures that had been pre-announced by the previous Labour government which the new government chose to implement. Attention is restricted to personal tax and benefit reforms alone: it does not examine the impact of reforms to corporation tax and other taxes formally paid by businesses, nor the impact of changes to spending on public services.
