Dividends 2016/17

Posted on by tfp in Planning, Taxation

HMRC has issued a Dividend Allowance Factsheet.

This confirms that this ‘simpler’ system will mean that only those with significant dividend income will pay more tax i.e. most small business’.

However, investors with modest income from shares, you’ll see either a tax cut or no change in the amount of tax they owe. So a higher rate taxpayer with dividend income of less than £5,000 will pay no tax on this income.
