12 Days To Protect Pension Tax Relief ?

You will have seen the seemingly endless press commentary as to what the Chancellor may announce on Budget Day. Many possible outcomes have been surmised.

What is almost certain is that for around 4 million* higher and additional rate taxpayers, the levels of tax relief on future pension savings will not be as attractive as they are currently.

To be certain of securing current levels of tax relief the only course of action is to ensure anyone wishing to make a lump sum contribution this tax year (either personally or through their business) do so by 15 March 2016 – the day before Budget day.

That’s only 12 days to ensure that the contribution and any associated paperwork is completed and with the provider.
