Wrong-foot the taxman before the rules change 6 April 2016
In his attempts to reduce the UK debt mountain, George Osborne has made inroads into a multitude of basic tax reliefs. Many significant changes are due to be made from 6 April 2016. Top of this list is the change to the taxation of dividends from 6 April 2016. At present you can take dividends from your company and as long as your total income (including the gross dividends taken) does not exceed your basic rate entitlement, there is no additional income tax to pay.
From 6 April 2016, the first £5,000 of dividend income is tax free, but any additional dividends, will be taxed at:
7.5% if the dividends form part of your basic rate band
32.5% if the dividend forms part of your higher rate band, and
38.1% if the dividend forms part of your additional rate band.
In practice, this will mean that any person in receipt of significant dividends will likely pay more tax.
If your company has undistributed reserves you should consider taking an additional dividend BEFORE 6 April 2016
