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 22nd edition has just been published (June 2021) 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 reduce 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.

What's New in the Latest Edition?

As always, the latest edition of Salary versus Dividends has been fully updated and shows you how to save tax when you take money out of your company during the current 2021/22 tax year.

This year’s edition also contains full details of the corporation tax increase and new company tax rules announced in the March 2021 Budget:

  • From April 2023 there will be three corporation tax rates: 19% (profits £50,000 or less), 26.5% (profits between £50,000 and £250,000) and 25% (profits over £250,000).
  • Higher corporation tax will make dividends more expensive. For many higher-rate taxpayers the combined tax rate (corporation tax and income tax) on dividend income will rise to 50.4%.
  • Higher corporation tax will make salaries, rental income, interest and other payments that enjoy corporation tax relief even more attractive than they are at present.
  • All of these tax planning opportunities are covered in the latest edition.
  • We also examine whether company owners should postpone certain types of spending, for example company pension contributions, so that more more tax relief can be enjoyed after the increase.
