Retirement savings hierarchy webinar
Tax changes announced in both the Autumn Statement and Spring Budget mean there are important new considerations when thinking about the tax wrapper hierarchy for clients saving for their retirement. Various allowances have been cut – or are due to be abolished entirely – while other policy measures have been announced.
In this webinar, attended by a significant number of advice practitioners, Fidelity’s Paul Squirrell runs through how the changes affect the planning process while Jon Hale will demonstrates how to practically manage and facilitate any required actions on our platform.
Highlights of this one-hour session include:
- How the Spring Budget has changed the pension savings landscape and the opportunities this may give
- Why pension savings are still the first place to start
- Considerations for ISA allowances for the 2023/24 tax year
- The options when investing beyond pensions and ISAs (comparing, for example, onshore bonds, offshore bonds and collectives)
- Hints and tips for capital gains management and how to manage reporting requirements
- How to make the most of our platform functionality
- How Fidelity’s reporting services can help you manage risk within your business.
