Tax on capital gains

If you receive Dividends or made Capital Gains, you must submit tax return to HMRC and pay an amount of tax on that income. You may receive a dividend payment if you own shares in a company.

You can earn some Dividend income each year without paying tax.

You do not have to pay tax on any Dividend income that falls within your Personal Allowance (the amount of income you can earn each year without paying tax).

You also get a Dividend allowance each year. You only pay tax on any Dividend income above the Dividend allowance.
