The UK Government greatly values the contribution of care workers, particularly during the current crisis.

Under the longstanding rules of tax treatment, any payments made in connection with an employment are chargeable to income tax and national insurance contributions.

The Government will work with the Welsh Government to understand the nature of any new payments and determine the tax treatment.
