- This calculator has been created for the 2014-15 tax year. For the current year, use our 2015-16 calculator.
- The calculator assumes you are eligible to receive the full personal allowance during the 2014/15 tax year of £10,000 (tax code 1000L).
- If your total income for the year was £100,000 or over (salary + dividends), the value of your personal allowance is eroded by £1 for every £2 you earned over this threshold, so at £120,000 you will have lost your entire £10,000 allowance.
- To keep the spreadsheet as simple as possible, we’ve made no allowance for any additional income you may have received during the tax year.
- The dividends you pay into your bank account are known as ‘net’ dividends. In order to tax them, they are first multiplied by (10/9) to produce the ‘gross’ dividend. To find out more about how dividends are taxed, and what a tax credit is, read our guide to company dividends.
- You will enter any dividends you received during the previous tax year on your annual self-assessment tax return (submission and payment by the 31st Jan following the end of the tax year in question).
- The calculations have been verified by our ACA qualified accountant. You should always check your own calculations with a qualified accountant before submitting your tax return to HMRC.
