SPC launches A-Day advisory service

The Society of Pension Consultants has launched a service to provide employers with information about pensions changes being introduced from A-Day.
It has published a guide entitled ‘The New Lifetime Allowance and your Benefits’ on its web site that is intended as a background to the changes tabled for April next year.
The statement outlines planned primary and enhanced protection methods for funds in excess of the defined lifetime allowance for tax-privileged pensions, scheduled to be £1.5 million for the tax year 2006/2007. Additional taxes of up to 25% could be levied in the absence of protection.
