When building a financial plan, we always consider the tax implications of our recommendations. Tax and tax planning is an evolving area that needs to be considered at each review. Below are just some of the considerations that we make when assessing the impact of tax on your long-term planning:

• Have annual allowances been used (Individual Savings Accounts (ISA’s), Capital Gains Tax and pension contributions allowances).

• How your financial plan will impact on your annual tax bill.

• How will you be able to draw funds in retirement in the most tax efficient way.

• How will you be able to make sure that your assets are passed to your beneficiaries, with as little tax taken as possible, when you die.

Governments change rules on taxation frequently, so the ongoing tax efficiency of your financial plan will be reviewed regularly.
