    Anna, no personal allowance...
    Deduct the 500 savings allowance...
    142,350 taxable
    32000 x 20% = 6400
    110350 x 40% = 44,140
    Tax liability = 50540
    Is that right?

    Brendan
    Non savings 88,000 -11000 pa = 77000
    32000 x 20% = 6400
    45000 x 40% = 18000

    Dividends 7210 - 5000 dividend allowance
    = 2210 x 32.5% = 718.25

    Total tax liability = 25118.25

    Hi. I was doing this as well. But the answer is easier when we think. They ask only investment income taxable amount , not total tax liability.
    Thus for Anna taxable investment income will be 4780-500 (allowance as high rate tax payer)=4280£, @ 40%
    And for Brendan 7210-5000(allowance) =2210£ taxed at 32.5%
