Pension changes and tax year end

Published  31 January 2024
   60 min CPD

Join Senior Intermediary Development and Technical Managers Justin Corliss and Fiona Hanrahan for our first webinar of 2024.

During this session, Justin and Fiona will talk about how the changes announced in the Spring Budget 2023 affect your tax year end planning. Changes to the annual allowance, money purchase annual allowance and tapered annual allowance will likely mean your clients can pay in more this tax year end than in previous years. Importantly without a tax charge applying. They’ll look at how carry forward differs from previous years to ensure clients make the most of their available allowances. 

As a result of these changes, they’ll also talk about some other tax year end opportunities for your individual clients, as well as your business owner clients using case studies where relevant.

Justin and Fiona will also talk about the changes coming in from 6 April 2024 related to the removal of the lifetime allowance (LTA). In particular, how the lump sum allowance and the lump sum and death benefits allowances will operate. They’ll use case studies to help your understanding of how these work and consider how these allowances will be reduced for your clients who take or have taken benefits before 6 April 2024. They’ll also cover off how LTA protections will operate going forward.
