In accordance with the new taxation proposals introduced by the Minister for Finance in April, an additional surcharge of 75 cents on each £1 of chargeable income over £800 will be paid on all incomes for 1953 and subsequent years. Those with total incomes of more than £9,000 will pay the surcharge at the appropriate rate for that figure. In addition there is a personal tax at £3 per annum which is now to be doubled, and a new rate of tax at £10 is to be introduced on incomes exceeding £200 per annum.
