Quick moan, why do text books do that  no answers to some of the questions?
Any way problem is this:
'Prepare Tax computation, including calculations of total income tax liablity and the part that has yet to be paid or refunded'
'General Income 5000
Savings Inc 14625
Dividends 4500
personal allowance 6035
Taxable income 18090'
My probem is how to tha lay out the computation because the general income is 1035 and
Would someone like to set it out for me?
I think the answer is a refund of £489.
Unfortunately our tutor is ill at present but does anyone know where to get the answers to the questions with out answers in the Osborne books?
Any help appreciated.

Sorry should have said the savings and dividends are the gross amounts....
General income 5000  6035 = (1035)
I suppose my question is do you take off the 1035 (50006035) from savings income(14625) before calculating the tax e.g. 14625  1035= 13590 = 2320 x 10% = 232, 11270 x 20% = 2254 total = 2486
dividends = 4500, so 2320 x 10% = 232
2180 x 10% = 218 (or 4500 x 10% =450!)
total tax payable 2936 less tax paid 3425 = 489 (refund)
c u in the moning!0 
Yeah, the left over 1035 from the PA then gets taken off the total of savings income. so no general income, 13590 savings income and 4500 dividends income to tax0

also the 2320 10% band gets taken off the savings income, and all of the 4500 is takable at 10%, not only 2320 of it0

Thank you! I would have liked to see how the layout worked for the negative general income in a computation but the book didn't show an answer  very annoying!0

if you send me the question when i email you later i will work on it it and see my compaired answer0

Hi. The answer is a refund of £39. We did this in class this week. I got it wrong!!!
The total taxable income was £17590
Calculation was:
Emplyment £5000  £6035 = (£1035)
Savings £14625 £1035  £13590
Dividend £4000
Savings £2320 x 10% = £232 and then £11270 x 20% = £2254 total £2486
Dividend £4000 x 10% = £400
Savings + dividends = £2886
Less already paid of £2925
Income tax to be refunded (£39)0 
thanks0
