    How much do I earn?

    Ok so it's a dumb sounding question.

    I receive income as a director of my company £8060.04 PAYE, £19298.35 Dividends + Rental income £29383.33 (Gross figure, no interest or expenses deducted). I am confused as to what my total income is for the purposes of things like child benefit and calculating my overall tax burden. Am currently using a tax calculator provided by mortgage works in order to see the effect of landlord tax changes and I'm not sure whether dividends count as "employment income". If I earn dividends + PAYE do I treat the whole lot as I would treat a regular salary and then add the rental income on top of that?

    My interest + expenses for the rental property total £17763.97. When it comes to things like child benefit I'm not sure whether I'm breaching the £50k barrier or not!

    Dividends are NOT employment income as far as HMRC are concerned, however they are taken into consideration for Child Benefit purposes. Same goes for property income.

    Use the gov. calc. to check your eligibility:

      What you earn and what you are paid have always seemed often different. Many footballers get paid millions but imho only earn a couple of £100ks
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        Dividends are taxed under a different tax regime to income tax, but they're still taxed.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

          Your "rental income" should be the gross rent ( £29383) minus property expenses ( £17763 ) = £ 11,620 income from rental property.

          I estimate your annual income = £8,060 ( dir. pay ) + £19,298( divi ) + £11,620 ( rent income) = £38,949

          Use the Gov calculator :

            I feel I have messed up my life. Despite working hard, I have landed on a banana skin.

            I bought a 3 bedroom house many years ago. It seemed like a nice area. Little did I know, nearby the local housing associations had housed the thugs like the Kray twins and their chums. It was a "problem...

            You will also get Letting Relief and Private Residence Relief and your personal Annual Allowance for CGT. Your bill maybe a lot less than you think.

            I think your assessed Tax Band is the key, not your Income, which can vary. eg Benefit in Kind, net profit from property etc
            Govt can easily alter qualifying Income.

            Hi there. I live in a Victorian property which has been divided into 5 flats.
            Several years ago, three of the flat owners (including myself) purchased the freehold. The two remaining flat owners decided that they would not participate in the freehold purchase.
            A company was formed for the...

            Normally the freehold company will report the income received from lease extension as "annual profit" in its annual acounts which are produced after the year end.

            The profit will be reported in the tax return and about 13 months later the company get a tax bill of around 20%....

            CGT is only 18% (28 If you earn a lot). You still get 82% of any increase in value.
            Plus the rental income.

            If you quote some details : we can work out roughly the cgt.

            When you bought the property and the price paid
            Dates when you lived in the property.
            Market value now .

            Thank you very much for your response - I appreciate any assistance.
            The only trouble is that there are two companies involved (I should have mentioned this previously!)
            One company is the freehold company (representing the interests of the freeholders - collecting ground rent, leasehold...

            I'd leave the money in the company, and relieve the directors of paying service charge until such time as the cash is depleted.
