Salary versus Dividends

& Other Tax Efficient Profit Extraction Strategies

By Dr Nick Braun PhD

Salary versus Dividends is essential reading for ALL company owners and directors.

The 21st edition has just been published (April 2020) and is completely up to date.

Written in plain English with dozens of examples, this unique guide shows you how to save thousands of pounds in tax every year by choosing the best mix of salary and dividends.

It also shows you how to slash your tax bill further by paying yourself rent and interest and using directors' loans, company pension contributions and other powerful profit extraction strategies.

Company owners can enjoy additional tax savings by 'smoothing' their income or varying it from year to year ('roller-coaster income'). This guide shows you how to use these strategies to avoid paying too much tax each year.

  • Whether company directors can be furloughed under the Job Retention Scheme
