Many questions of tax are best addressed by specialist solicitors and accountants, but there are areas where financial planners are key in managing a tax bill for a client. For example:
- Surrendering insurance-based investments, where gains are taxed at income tax rates but may be eligible for top slicing relief.
- Contributions to pensions may trigger annual allowance charges or breach Enhanced or Fixed Protection held by the member.
- Crystallisation of schemes may trigger a lifetime allowance charge.
- Investment income may cause the loss of personal allowance or child benefit, and may have an impact on the tapering of a client’s annual allowance for high earners.
