Budget word in yellow background

In a previous blog we had highlighted some points made from the Budget 2015. Below are a selection of extra points that followed.

Zero Tax Rate On Savings 2015/16

As reported a year ago there will be a zero rate on the first £5,000 of investment funds salary from 2015/16 onwards. Nevertheless, note that this will just give full advantages to those with assessable salary between the fundamental rate band £10,600 and £15,600.

£1,000 Interest Income Tax Free 2016/17

Starting April 2016, a tax-free allowance of £1,000 (or £500 for higher rate taxpayers) will be brought in for the interest that people acquire on savings. If you are a higher rate taxpayer and earn between £42,701 and £150,000, you'll be eligible for a £500 tax-free savings allowance, but those with income in excess of £150,000 a year will be taxed in full on their interest income. On the other hand, if you are a basic rate taxpayer and have a whole income up to £42,700 a year, you will be eligible for the £1,000 tax-free savings allowance.
