Tax Changes from April 2024

As we head into a new tax year, we have summarised all the upcoming changes to tax from 6 April 2024.

Personal Pensions

  • As of 6 April 2024, the Lifetime Allowance charge has been abolished.
    • This means there will be no limit on how much you accumulate in your pension in your lifetime (annual limits still apply)
  • Capped pension tax-free lump sum at £268,275 – or 25% of your pension pot, whichever is lower.
    • Any withdrawal above this will be subject to income tax at your marginal rates


  • Tax-efficient ISA allowance remains at £20,000
  • Junior ISA annual allowance remains at £9,000
  • You can now open and pay into different ISAs of the same type in a single tax year.
  • Plans to introduce a British Stocks and Shares ISA, meant to encourage investment in British companies.
    • This would allow you to save an additional £5,000 per year tax efficiently into the new ISA
    • No date announced for when this will be available, consultation to take place

Savings Allowance

  • No changes to the personal savings allowance
  • Allowance of £1,000 for basic rate taxpayers, £500 for higher rate tax payers and £0 for additional rate tax payers

Dividends Allowance

  • Dividend allowance is being reduced from £1,000 to £500 as of 6 April 2024.

Capital Gains Tax

  • The CGT allowance has been reduced from £6,000 to £3,000 from 6 April 2024.
  • For residential property gains on disposals made from 6 April 2024, the higher rate of CGT will reduce from 28% to 24%.
    • Private Residence Relief will still apply on qualify sales of a main residence

High Income Child Benefit Charge (HICBC)

  • The threshold for HICBC will be increasing from £50,000 to £60,000.
  • The rate at which HICBC has also been halved from 1% of Child Benefit for every additional £100 earnt above the threshold to 1% for every additional £200 earnt above the threshold
  • This means the threshold for which Child Benefit will be completely clawed back has increased from £60,000 to £80,000.
  • As long as you earn between £60,000 and £80,000 it may still be worth it financially to claim the benefit.

Personal Tax

  • No changes to personal tax rates, or the personal tax thresholds.

National Insurance

  • The main rate of primary Class 1 NI contributions will be reduced by 2p from 10% to 8% on earnings between £12,570 and £50,270 per annum (2% rate remains on earnings above this amount).
  • The main rate of Class 4 NI contributions will be reduced from 9% to 6% on profits between £12,570 and £50,270 (2% rate remains on profits over this amount).
  • Removal of the requirement for the self-employed to pay Class 2 NI contributions with effect from 6 April 2024


  • The government has announced plans to abolish the remittance basis of taxation for non-UK domiciled taxpayers and replace it with a simpler residence-based system. The changes are proposed to take effect from 6 April 2025
  • Overseas Workdays Relief will be reformed based on the new system to remove the need to retain income earned overseas outside the UK
  • There will be a consultation to move to a residence-based system for Inheritance Tax
