Higher Rate = 40% - £34,800+

2009 to 2010


Starting Rate* 10% = £0 - £2,440
Basic Rate 20% = £0 - £37,400
Higher Rate 40% = £37,400+
Increased Higher Rate 50% from April 2010 = £150,000+
This replaces the 45% Tax Rate

* From 2008-2009 the 10% starting rate now only applies to income which is produced from savings. If however your taxable income is higher than the starting rate maximum then the 10% starting rate will not actually apply to any savings which you have.
