What is the Dividend Allowance?
From 6 April 2016 a new tax-free Dividend Allowance will replace the Dividend Tax Credit.
The Dividend Allowance is £5,000 and means that you won’t have to pay tax on the first £5,000 of your dividend income per tax year. Tax will be due on any dividends you receive over £5,000 per tax year.
