    Default Divs next year

    "The much-disliked plan at Budget 2017 to cut contractors’ tax-free dividend allowance by £3,000 has been officially re-tabled by the government. But unlike last week’s re-tabling of Making Tax Digital, where a delay has been put in place, the cut in the allowance will go ahead from April 2018, as planned".

    It's back on then...
    Clarity is everything

    What does this mean in reality? An extra £225 a year assuming staying in the lower rate?

    Share them? Surely she's bought her own?

    Well yes but I didn't want to make the assumption that other people have their wife as a shareholder

    Surely if you want to take the same as last year it means 3k more into the higher rate. So £975 more tax?

    And if you take 3k less than last year £0 more tax?

    My assumptions are for a contractor currently taking up to the current max within the lower rate (£45k)

    So if last year i took £45k = £3000 tax
    This year I take £45k = £3225

    So if I take the same dividends I pay £225 more in tax..?
