Dividends Calculator

When a payment is made by a company to its shareholders, the payment that has been made is a share of the company's profits.

Starting from the 6th of April in 2016, the way in which tax is calculated in order to pay tax on dividends, is being changed.

See the table below the calculator in order to see how annual gross amounts of income determine which tax rate applies.

Note that the currency for all of the calculations that you make below are calculated in pounds sterling.
