DIVIDENDS AND INTEREST TAX
Apply correct rules to calculate your dividends and interest tax
In year 2016, HMRC made some changes to Dividends Tax and Credits which you may find complex. Therefore, you should seek professional dividend and tax advice, so you don’t have to pay more than you need. ZATRS can help you plan and give professional advice in order to avoid a disadvantageous effect on your household budget, a couple earning £100,000 per annum are now worse off by around £5,000. Small business owners will also need new guidance, especially if the company owner paid themselves £8,000 per annum to cover basic NIC benefits. The new system could see you pay an extra £2,050 on a dividend of £40,000 with a basic £8,000 salary. Forthcoming amendments to corporation tax will also see these thresholds change over the next few years, so we understand many people will seek the help and support of a professional tax accountant to help plan around these issues.
