Tax on Savings Income
As with other types of income, tax can be due on savings income. Savings income includes bank and building society interest, which is paid gross (no tax being deducted at source), NS & I accounts and government stocks or gilts.
Depending on each individual’s taxable income level, savings income can be taxed at 0%, 20%, 40% or 45%. A savings nil rate applies of £1,000 if you are basic rate tax payer. This savings allowance decreases to £500 for higher rate tax payers and zero savings allowance if you are an additional tax payer.
This is taxed after non-savings income and interest income as a top slice of income.
Each individual has a dividend allowance of £2,000, where any dividend income within this is taxed at 0%.
Dividend rates vary from 0%, 8.75%,33.75% & 39.35%.
