We are aware that some people may be put off investing money during this volatile time and we can therefore invest the money in cash and await further instruction at a later date to invest into funds. Let us remind you of some of the reliefs you may miss out on if you do not invest before then.

2019/20 Personal Pension

The annual allowance for 2019/20 is £40,000 per person although you could have more than this if you use carry forward from previous year or less than this if you earn over £110,000 per annum. We will confirm the maximum you can contribute if you contact us and go through a few simple questions. Below are some reasons to invest in a pension:

  • Tax Relief – Your contributions receive 20% gross tax relief meaning that £800 is turned into £1,000, £24,000 is turned into £30,000 and so on. For higher rate taxpayers (those earning above £50,000) or additional rate tax payers (those earning above £150,000) they can claim a further 20% and 25% tax relief respectively on their tax return. For those earning between £100,000 and £125,000 it is possible to get up to 60% tax relief.
  • Growth - Give your money the potential for growth through investing in funds.
  • Tax efficient – You pay no tax on UK income or capital gains from your investments inside your ISA.
  • Child Benefit – For those earning above £50,000 and facing a child benefit tax charge, it is possible to make a pension contribution that brings you below the limit and therefore not liable to the charge.

2019/20 Individual Savings Account (ISA)

The allowance for 2019/20 is £20,000 per person. If you do not use up your allowance before next Friday, then this will be lost. Below are the reasons to invest in an ISA:
