Pension for a new future

0

The taxation of pensions act 2014 has been laid before us. It received royal assent on 17 December 2014 and outlines changes that will impact every single one of your clients; and some very much more than others. And some very soon.

This legislation will impact every single one of us and it winds itself around quite a few tricky aspects of retirement planning; do you know the difference between BCE 7 and 5(c)? You might need to know because your clients will be getting a BCE statement…

Here’s a little pro-forma letter I’d think about sending out to everyone of your clients RIGHT NOW. Feel free to copy it.

‘’Dear client,

I hope this finds you well and the New Year has started as you hoped.

Please excuse the brevity of my letter/email, but this is important.

This is urgent and important. I really do need to arrange to speak to you as soon as possible.

Just before Christmas, a new pensions bill received royal assent and the details of the taxation of pensions act 2014 was laid before us. But, what does that mean for you?

Would you like to take your pension when you want, as much as you want and as a tax-effectively as you can after age 55?

Would you like to keep as much of your pension wealth as possible, during life and beyond death for you and your family?

Would you like to use your pension wealth to help you reach your life goals?

If yes is the answer to any of these questions, then we should talk soon.

The new pensions act will come into force from 6 April 2015 and together we can plan how best to maximise the new rules for your benefit.

I have just completed a professional development course on the new rules and achieved a professional development certificate from expertpensions ltd**. That coupled with my professional diploma qualifications and our experience in retirement planning mean that we are well prepared to provide expert advice on these new rules and how they apply to you.

The new pension rules for 2015 will allow a new generation of planning for you, your wife/partner and children. I want to ensure that you are kept abreast with what it means for you personally and together we can make the right decisions for your future retirement planning and your family wealth.

Please give this some careful consideration and give me a call.

All the very best,‘’
