Perhaps I should have one of those. Twice in recent years I've been rear-ended by drivers who blamed me for having ABS. (which didn't engage on either occasion, btw)

In section 55B(2) (transferable allowance: conditions for entitlement to tax reduction)—
(a)in paragraph (b) (individual liable to tax only at certain rates), after “the basic rate,” insert “ the dividend nil rate, ”, and
(b)after paragraph (b) insert—
“(ba)if for the tax year the individual is liable to tax at the dividend nil rate, the individual would for that year neither be liable to tax at the dividend upper rate, nor be liable to tax at the dividend additional rate, if section 13A (dividend nil rate) were omitted,”.

If YOU have claimed, then your personal allowance will fall and you may well then owe extra tax.
That's what you've implied. Was it what you meant?

A final thought. When you switch career - If you switch career - do train yourself to stop being a teacher. I regularly found myself still trying to herd others when in a corridor !

I started as a secondary school teacher - jacked it in at 30 - so a similar trajectory. I'm not sure that secondary teaching is a sustainable lifetime career.
Addressing your particular point, it is not really about maths. What you need is arithmetic and approximation skills - and common sense. What I mean by that is that just about everyone in accounting relies on software nowadays. Some are too reliant and so don't notice when a ridiculous result arises. These errors can be due to errors in the use of the software - but are, far too often, down to faults in the "professional" software itself. Are you the sort of person who can live with this? Maths in schools is still so deterministic !
