CGT Annual Exemption

I thought the 2013/14 CGT exemption was £10,900, not £11,000.

Savings rate

I thought the 10% rate on savings had been abolished?

Savings Rate

It is my understanding that those whose savings take them over the personal allowance, the 10% rate will be abolished from April 2015 and the band of savings income that is subject to the 0% rate will be increased from £2,790 to £5,000.
