Income tax cuts plus some not so beneficial changes for self-employed tax payers

Together with the rest of the UK taxpayers, the self-employed too will enjoy cuts on their income tax. However the new scheme which looks at digitising your UK tax return together with changes introduced to capital gains tax relief for owners of a business could take away a portion of those gains.

Changes coming in for 2019/20 tax year

Increases on in-come tax bands 2019/20

The net profit margin or your ‘personal tax free allowance’ before you become a UK taxpayer, rises by 5% to GBP 12,500 by 06th April; the previous figure was GBP 11,850. 

However, the personal allowance margin for higher earners will be reduced.

  • If net profits are over GBP 100,000 your personal allowance is decreased by GBP 1 for every GBP 2 you mark in as earnings which exceed the initial GBP 100,000
  • Earn over GBP 124,000 and you are entitled to no personal allowance and you get taxed on the entire net profit
  • Higher threshold for paying a higher tax-rate. The increase is 40% going from GBP 46,350 to GBP 50,000

The good news, this change does not affect a large percentage of self-employed people in the UK; you can check your status and find out more on the new UK tax reforms for self-employed, simply contact our tax consultants and let us take over the worry and stress.
