Knutsford Corporate Retirement Planning

Knutsford Corporate Retirement Planning

When the time arrives for a business owner to consider Knutsford retirement planning, the first thing that comes to their mind should be how to achieve the most tax-efficient way of extracting profits from the business. A Knutsford corporate retirement planning review can help create a plan for a continued income after the sale of the business.

Most business owners have not yet taken advantage of all of the tax planning opportunities available to them, and they are missing out on many opportunities to build up their retirement funds to a greater extent.

When the business is the owner of assets, for example the buildings it is run from, it may actually make sense to make a pension scheme the owner of these instead of the business.

A Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) can hold many different types of assets. You can use it to hold company property, bonds, shares and cash. It is a good choice for companies that wish to purchase the premises they trade from. The business then makes rental payments direct to the SIPP.

Business property relief (BPR)

Your retirement could be funded by the sale of your business and so assessing if you can claim BPR on the sale may be the key to a successful retirement.

Self-Administered Scheme (SASS)

A SASS is similar to a SIPP but has the additional ability to lend money (up to half the accrued value) back to the company.

Are Annuities Still A Viable Option For Retirement Planning?

Are Annuities Still A Viable Option?

Annuities are retirement products that guarantee you with a regular income after you retire.

You choose a provider, pick an appropriate annuity to suit your needs and, in exchange for some or all of your pension savings, the annuity provides income until you die.

The use of annuities has declined markedly in recent years, with figures from the Association of British Insurers suggesting sales have fallen by as much as 80% since 2014.

Research from the Financial Conduct Authority reflects this trend, with year-on-year annuity sales down 16% in the six months to April 2017.

This is partly due to the fact that, following former chancellor George Osborne’s introduction of pension reforms in 2015, people now have more options when it comes to planning their retirement.

However, are annuities still a viable retirement planning option to consider in 2017?
