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 (5000-6035) 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!

    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 tax

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

    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!

    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)
