    scooter selling his affections on the Strasse is hardly going to fix the balance of payments.

    Special rates have been introduced twice within the post-war years, causing income tax in certain circumstances to exceed 100%.

    * For 1947-48 a special contribution was payable when a person’s total income exceeded £2,000. For investment income over £5,000 it was 50%. So with income tax at 45% and surtax at 52.5%, the effective rate was 147.5%.
    * In 1967-68, the special charge was imposed. For investment income over £8,000, the rate was 45% which - with income tax at 41.25% and surtax at 50% - meant a total rate of 136.25%.


    With substantial investment income tax rates were "only" 98% in the mid 70s.
