Hi again.

I've assumed that your figures are for the 2013/14 tax year.

As your income was over £100,000, you won't be entitled to the personal allowance.

Assuming you paid £6,000 in net personal pension contributions as opposed to company pension contributions, these gross up to £7,500 with £1,500 in basic rate tax relief being paid directly by HMRC into your pension plan. Assuming the £2,000 in charitable donations was net of basic relief, these gross up to £2,500. The sum of the gross pension contributions and the gross charitable donations of £10,000 is added to the basic rate tax band to make that £42,010.

Your salary of £18,500 will be taxed at 20% (£3,700.00).

Of the gross dividend of £168,888 (£152,000 / 0.9), £23,510 will be taxed at 10% (£2,351.00), £117,990 will be taxed at 32.5% (£38,346.75) and the balance of £27,388 will be taxed at 37.5% (£10,270.50). The gross tax liability on the dividends is, therefore, £50,968.25. From that, deduct the notional 10% dividend tax credit of £16,888.80 and you are left with a net tax liability on the dividends of £34,079.45.

If you made any payments on account of your 2013/14 tax liability in January 2014 and July 2014, these along with any tax deducted from your salary through PAYE should be deducted from the total net liability of £37,779.45 (£3,700.00 + £34,079.45) to arrive at the balancing payment for the year which should be paid by 31 January 2015.

You will also have payments on account to make for 2014/15 on 31 January 2015 and 31 July 2015. These will be based on your 2013/14 liability and each one will be 50% of your balancing payment for that year. That will make each one half of £37,779.45 less any PAYE deductions made in 2013/14. The payments on account can be reduced if you consider that your income for 2014/15 will be less than that for 2013/14.

I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.

PS you have posted a duplicate question. These take time to deal with, hence the delay.
