– In the budget yesterday, it was announced that Directors with small businesses who pay themselves in dividends alongside a salary will have their tax-free dividend allowance cut. If you own a business, we can help with any financial matter such as these.
Director shareholders will see a tax break reduced on the dividends they receive.
The tax-free dividend allowance – which only came into force a year ago – will be reduced from £5,000 to £2,000 from April 2018.
That will affect those who own a small business and pay themselves in dividends alongside a small salary.
It will also hit people with large portfolios of shares.
Experts say that with an Isa allowance of £20,000 available to use from April, many investors will not need to worry.
