    I siphon off the 7.5% every time i draw a dividend. Is this not common practice?

    There is a slight caveat. In my case, HMRC collect my dividend tax through my PAYE code. So I don't need to make a POA payment in Self Assessment, because I am paying it in PAYE. HMRC estimate that my dividends will be the same in 2017/18 as they were in 2016/17 and base it on that. I can tell them if I think otherwise.

    The numbers are the same, of course. It just blunts the pain a bit.

    You'd be surprised, or maybe not. I have a separate bank account into which I stash money that I think I will owe HMRC but there are a lot of people who don't put aside even the VAT they collect (which was never theirs in the first place).

    Yes you should.

    You should have an account for bills like that preferably with a different financial institution. That way if you are overdrawn on your main account, the bank can't help themselves to that money.

    Btw It does happen
