Planning for the 2016/17
Tax Year end
There is not long left until the
end of 2016/17 tax year, have
you ensured that you are not
paying unnecessary tax? It is not
too late to do some last-minute
tax planning to ensure that you
legally minimise your tax bill for
2016/17 tax year. Below are
some key areas to consider that
are applicable to most UK tax

Company Dividends

Personal Allowance

Pension Contributions

Effective from 6th April 2016 the
first £5,000 of dividends are
taxed at 0% no matter which
tax band you fall into. Dividends
at basic rate will be taxed at
7.5% (£0 to £32,000), 32.5%
at the higher rate (£32,001 to
£150,000) and 38.1% at the
additional rate (£150,000+).

every £2 above adjusted
income, this can result in the
minimum allowance for 2016/17
being £10,000 if your adjusted
income is £210,000.
Pension Lifetime Allowance
The total amount of UK pension
savings is currently £1 million,
any excess of this allowance is
subject to a 55% tax charge.

The tax-free allowance for the
tax year is £11,000, you and
your spouse should ensure that
were possible this allowance is
used in its entirety.
If you are a higher rate tax
payer your personal allowance
reduces by £1 for every £2 your
net income is above £100,000.
Therefore by £122,000 your
personal allowance is £0.
Depending on your own tax
circumstances your net income
could be reduced by charitable
donations that qualify for gift
aid or pension contributions.

The annual allowance for
2016/17 tax year to make taxrelievable pension contributions
is £40,000. If possible you
should be using this allowance to
the maximum, if you have not
fully utilised the allowance in
previous periods then it is

years unused allowance in the
current tax year.

allowance is a little more
complicated, potentially the
pension annual allowance can be
reduced to as little as £10,000
for 2016/17. A reduction will
happen if both your adjusted
income for the year is in excess
of £150,000 and your threshold
income is more than £150,000
less the standard allowance for
the year, £110,000 (£150,000
less £40,000). The £40,000
allowance is reduced by £1 for

applicable to everyone and are
subject to change depending on
each tax payer’s circumstances.
