We advise employers on a range of tax issues arising in relation to pension contributions.
- maximising pension contributions including via salary and bonus sacrifice arrangements, bonus waivers and flexible benefit plans
- minimising pension contributions in those situations where the employee is subject to the tax charges arising from the tapered annual allowance and/or lifetime allowance thresholds for example by providing a cash alternative to contributions
We also work closely with our specialist employment pension team, and coordinate the advice of other specialists where necessary. In particular, our team has built up a very strong relationship with Sackers LLP, the UK’s largest dedicated pensions firm in the UK and a fellow member of Ius Laboris the world’s leading alliance of firms specialising in HR law. This enables us to offer complete solutions to a variety of pensions (and related employment) issues.
