Thanks all for your replies. I was made redundant last year and as a consequence am in the unexpected position of paying at the 45% level and not having found another job trying to resolve myself. Consequently apologies for the naivety of the question framing. I am of course very grateful for any help (I was trying to keep the question professional, but accept the point).
Full input: Pay £174k (+£30k tax free), Rental income £4k, Dividends £1k. In the calculation the basic rate band has dropped by £1k. Presumably I can submit and then challenge HMRC to explain it and if I have incorrectly completed the return change it.
