New changes to Pension and Annual Lifetime Allowances

Once again the Annual and Lifetime pension allowances are changing.For the 2014/2015 tax year the Annual Allowance in the UK will be £40k, which is £10k less than the previous year. This is likely to affect many dentists, as even if not paying this amount directly into a pension scheme, any benefits or tax relief will be added to the value of the pension which could push it over the annual limit.

Similarly the Lifetime Allowance has fallen from £1.5m to £1.25m. This figure may not set alarm bells ringing at the moment, but depending on investment strategy and number of years before retirement, this could be a real possibility. Only with the help of Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs), can dentists be certain that they will not exceed these thresholds.
