Directors loan account (overdrawn)

Can someone please remind me what amount is acceptable for the directors loan account to be overdrawn at year end without having to pay the extra tax. I believe its up to 10k. Please advise. Thank you.

    If by extra tax you mean s455, I don't believe there is a de minimis limit (unless they work full time for the company, borrow less than £15k, and do not have a material interest in the company (in broad terms control less than 5% of the share capital)). You may like to have a scan of s455 - 458 CTA 2010.

    If you mean the BIK limit, that is £10k from 14/15 onwards; if you're over it and not paying interest/below HMRC's 'market rate' interest there will be a personal tax and Class 1A charge.
