Undoing all measures announced since 23 September 2022, the income tax rates applicable to non-dividend income remain as they are now; namely a 20% basic rate, a 40% higher rate and a 45% additional rate (for those with income over £150,000).
For dividends, although the associated 1.25 percentage point supplement on NICs is being removed from 6 November, income tax rates on dividends will not be reduced. They will remain as they are now; namely a 8.75% basic rate, a 33.75% higher rate and a 39.35% additional rate. The first £2,000 of dividend income continues to be tax-free.
The upcoming Autumn Statement will need to be closely monitored to confirm income tax rates in 2023/24.
Impact on profit extraction
The corporation tax rate increases and the continuance of the higher income tax rates on dividends
will impact on the profit extraction strategies adopted by director/shareholders in 2023/24.
Again, this may be affected by the Autumn Statement on 17 November 2022 but please do contact us to discuss how the changes affect you.
