7.5% increase in Income Tax on dividends to proceed

The legislation to introduce the new system of dividend taxation announced in the summer budget has now been included in the draft Finance Bill. Although individuals will be able to receive £5,000 of dividend income tax free each year from 2016/17, once that has been used up there will be a 7.5% increase in the rate of tax on dividends so you may wish to consider increasing you dividend payments before 6 April 2016.

Please give us a call to discuss your dividend policy prior to 5 April 2016.
