Tax Planning

It is vital that you have an investment strategy in place that is capable of generating the income that you require, without exposing you to more investment risk than you feel comfortable with. To maximise the investment income you receive either now or in the future, you should always consider maximising the available tax breaks.

  • The new tax year (2019/20) ISA allowance is/will be £20,000 from 6th April 2019. This can be invested entirely in an Investment ISA or in a Cash ISA. Or you can mix and match the amounts. Income from an ISA is free of taxation to you (except for the non-reclaimable 10% dividend tax credit).
