The Welsh Revenue Authority (WRA) is a new tax authority for Wales, collecting and managing Land Transaction Tax and Landfill Disposals Tax, which replaced Stamp Duty Land Tax and Landfill Tax, respectively in Wales, from 1 April 2018. 

These Welsh taxes have been designed and made in Wales and are tailored for the needs and priorities of Wales. The revenue raised from these taxes - estimated to be approximately £1bn over the next four years - will help fund Welsh public services, including the NHS and schools, in communities across Wales.

The WRA is a bilingual organisation which will eventually employ around 70 members of staff. The small and specialist team covers a wide range of professions, from data and digital through to HR, policy, communications and operations.
