Pensions Tax Planning for High Earners

Posted by - Glen Callow

If you are a high-earner and feel you are paying more and more tax, you are not alone.

This guide explores a key tax planning opportunity: making pension contributions. Pension contributions qualify for tax relief at your highest rate, which may be 40% or 45%.

After all, accidents and illnesses do happen.

These days, growing numbers of parents see their adult children struggling to build up enough in savings to put down the deposit on a house or to afford to move up from a first home to something larger. And, understandably, many parents want to do what they can to support their children financially with house purchase. This could be through a gift, a loan, helping with a guarantee when a mortgage is taken out or a range of other routes.
