When dividend is the main or even the only source of income for an individual can it then be treated under income tax rules? I recall reading something like this but can't find anything. I've tried a few of the online calculators and don't see any difference tax regime when salary income is entered as 0 but I'm not certain there aren't some special rules these calculators may be omitting. To avoid any confusion I'm talking about dividends distributed from FTSE 100 companies not "dividends" a director may pay himself from his own company.
