SRK Monthly Update – April 2018


The end of the tax year brings new directors salary and dividends rules. Make sure to check them out!







Directors Tax Free Salary 2018/2019


For the 2018/19 tax year the personal allowance is £11,850.


Directors salary has increased from £680 to £702 each month. This is the amount directors can pay themselves through payroll without incurring tax or NI contributions.




Dividends 2018/2019


From 6th April changes have been made, and a new dividend allowance has been implemented.


For the 2018/19 tax year, dividends are taxed as follows:


  • The dividend allowance means that an individual’s first £2,000 of dividends are tax free




Over and above this £2,000 the dividend income is taxed as follows:


  • If you have any un-used personal allowance then that element is tax free
  • Any dividends up to £46,350 for 17-18 attract a tax charge of 7.5%
  • Dividends above £46,350 are charged at 32.5%
  • Additional rates of tax will apply and personal allowance will be reduced if you declare more than £100,000 in the tax year
