Budget 2016 Loans to shareholders in private companies

Where a private company makes a loan to a shareholder  it currently has to pay  a tax deposit at 25% of the loan to HMRC, refundable when the loan is repaid or written off.   For advances from 6 April 2016 the rate of tax chargeable will  rise to 32.5% in line with the changes to dividend rates.
