Pensions and Retirement Planning

When it comes to providing for the future, too many people are doing too little too late. Your retirement should be a time
to make the most of life. Putting away even a small sum early on can make a big difference to the lifestyle you enjoy when
you retire.

The golden rule is not to rely on the state pension alone. Most pensions benefit from considerable tax breaks, and you can even contribute to your pension if you don’t work.

Pensions legislation has changed dramatically in recent years. There are many new benefits for existing pension holders. To see how the pension freedoms may have benefited you, contact us.

There are many different tax efficient pension schemes available, but they all have the same aim – to help you save money and provide you with a comfortable income in retirement.

Regardless of your stage in life, it is important to receive expert, professional advice on your pension plans and requirements. The area is complex, so choosing the right vehicle requires a detailed understanding of your personal circumstances, tax position, employment status and more.

Types of pension contracts include: 

  • Stakeholder pension
  • Personal Pension Plan (PPPs)
  • Group Personal Pension Plan
  • Executive Pension Plan
  • Employers Schemes (Occupational Pensions)
  • Self-Invested Personal Pension Plan

Planning for your retirement is all about knowing how to maximise the income and capital from your pension arrangements and other assets. This needs to take into consideration your personal circumstances, tax implications including inheritance tax, your beneficiaries, flexibility and, of course, control.
