50 days to go until pension tax perks could be lost
The Spring budget is only 50 days away and it is has been reported that it is highly likely that George Osborne will severely reduce, or scrap all together, the tax relief gained on pension contributions.
Even if he doesn’t scrap them all together, he is likely to reduce the relief available to top earners, who are already about to see the amount they can pay into their pensions contributions reduce significantly from April, resulting in a double blow for these high earners.
But even those who are classed as ‘middle’ earners are also likely to be targeted – 4.5 million people who pay 40% tax on the top part of their income, may see a reduction in tax relief from the current level of 40%.
This will be a huge bonus to the Chancellor adding a possible £35 billion to the Chancellor’s coffers.
If you think you could be affected by these new rules, what should you be doing before the Spring Budget?
The pensions rules are becoming ever more complicated and we believe it is imperative to seek advice on the best way to manage your pension.

"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
