    18 January 2013
    In his autumn statement, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced that the annual and lifetime allowances would be reduced again. Draft clauses for the Finance Bill 2013 which will implement these changes have now been published. HM Treasury and HMRC have also published draft legislation aimed at fixing some of the problems in the existing annual allowance and fixed protection regimes.

    In the 2009 Budget, the Government announced fundamental changes to the way that pensions will be taxed from 2011 for high earners and introduced immediate measures designed to prevent individuals increasing their pension savings in anticipation of these changes.

    These changes will affect not just high earning individuals but also companies, trustees and pensions managers. At the Punter Southall Group, we can draw on a range of expertise to enable us to provide advice to all of these parties. We can ensure that:
    • companies have the right remuneration strategy in place for their key staff;
    • individuals make the right decisions on their pension based on their circumstances; and
    • trustees can implement the new information and administration requirements effectively.
    We are now launching our “High Earners & Contributors: Survival Guide”. Through a series of straightforward and focused briefing notes, we will help you to develop an understanding of the changes ahead and keep you up to date with developments as they occur.
