Welcome to our latest edition. We want you to create the life you want and believe anything is possible when we manage our finances in the right way.
Inside this issue, we look at why it’s important to consider the tax implications of making financial decisions. The 2018/19 tax year is now upon us, and a raft of new changes have come into force. The good news is that the overall tax burden is little changed for basic-rate taxpayers, but there are number of areas that have changed that should be taken note of. On page 10, we look at what you need to know about the 2018/19 tax year changes and new initiatives.
By the time we have been working for a decade or two, it is not uncommon to have accumulated multiple pension plans. There’s no wrong time to start thinking about pension consolidation, but you might find yourself thinking about it if you’re starting a new job or nearing retirement. Turn to page 12 to read the full article.
If you struggle to navigate the UK’s Inheritance Tax regime, you are not alone. Whether you are setting up your estate planning or sorting out the estate of a departed family member, the system can be hard to follow. On page 06, we look at how getting your planning wrong could also mean your family is faced with an unexpectedly high Inheritance Tax bill.
Forget the Lamborghini – 2.4 million UK grandparents have either raided their pension to support their grandchildren, or plan to in the future.
On page 13, we look at research that shows a quarter of generous grandparents have already given away money to their grandchildren and have taken the funds from their pension.
A full list of the articles featured in this issue appears on page 03 and opposite - we hope you enjoy this issue.
