PLANNING for your future

There are no restrictions on the number of pensions you hold, but there is an allowance which governs how much tax relief you are entitled to. For example, you are entitled to pay into a personal pension and be a member of your employer's pension scheme. Your employer will pay contributions directly from your salary before it is taxed, giving immediate tax relief.

At Absolute Wealth Management, we can help you review and where necessary, look at consolidating pension schemes, to maximise your retirement savings, allowing you to fund the lifestyle you want post retirement.
