26. Under the Fiscal Framework Agreement, the block grant adjustment will effectively be determined by the indexed per capita method until March 2022. Under this approach, the block grant adjustment will increase in line with the percentage growth in tax receipts per head in the UK, multiplied by Scottish population growth. The net impact on the Scottish Government budget will therefore depend on the relative growth in tax per head for each devolved tax in Scotland and the rest of the UK. The agreement is available at the link below. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-agreement-between-the-scottish-government-and-the-united-kingdom-government-on-the-scottish-governments-fiscal-framework
