As part of wide ranging attack on the self-employed, chancellor Philip Hammond last year announced plans to tinker with the dividend tax rules, cutting the dividend tax-free allowance from £5,000 to £2,000.80% of investors are not expected to pay tax under the dividend regime, but the big losers will be business owners who have hitherto paid themselves dividends as a more tax-efficient alternative to a salary.Small businesses with a couple of employees and individuals such as freelancers and...
Finding sustainable income at a sensible price is becoming increasingly difficult for investors as the nine-year bull market rumbles on.Pockets of potential value remain, most notably among UK domestic stocks, which have caught the attention of various investors, including Neil Woodford.As ever, though, investors risk catching the proverbial falling knife, and while UK equities in general continue to be given the cold shoulder by investors, there is no obvious catalyst that will revive...
Banks are the least trusted to deliver good investment returns, according to new research. The poll, carried out by YouGov on behalf of IG Group, asked investors to state whether they are ‘confident’ or ‘not confident’ when it comes to trusting various third parties to invest on their behalf and deliver good returns.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
