Date: 4 November 2015 13:30 to 17:00

Type: Course, Tax

Organiser: Cumberland

This course is aimed at partners and staff involved in the provision of advice to clients.

The course will cover:

  • Contributions – quantum and pitfalls – Lifetime limits, Annual Allowances, Employer contributions – a quick reminder
  • Operation of the scheme including what happens on retirement
  • Benefits including taxation problems
  • Planning advice – not just register pension schemes:-
    • What else can you save into that could be tax efficient? What about Cash rich companies….
    • Why spend your pension when you could spend your ISAs?
    • Capital Tax planning in the light of the changes – is it more counter intuitive than you think?

Examples will be used to illustrate the rules and how they work in practice and the planning opportunities that ensue. In view of the number of changes above, the course will not be dealing with offshore pensions such as QROPs nor will it deal with Auto Enrolment.
