Let’s Talk About Tax…First Masterclass Topic for 2018 Announced

tax

When it comes to pensions and investments, the rules surrounding taxation are particularly complex. Due to the ever-changing investment landscape, investors need to be aware of the differences when accumulating and decumulating wealth to provide for their retirement. In particular, the order in which wealth can be accumulated and decumulated within different tax wrappers can result in significantly different tax outcomes. Failure to plan correctly could leave investors with a far bigger tax bill than necessary.

To help explain the complex rules around taxation and investments, we’ll be joined by John Makin, Senior technical manager at Standard Life. John’s presentation, entitled: ‘Minimising Tax and Maximising Income’, will look at the optimal route to follow when in the ‘accumulation’ phase and the ways tax liability can be reduced when drawing down from investments. John will also cover the areas that frequently catch investors out, looking at how effective planning can help to make the most from an investment portfolio whilst minimising overall tax liability.

Event Details

Our first Masterclass of the year will take place on 21st February. There will be two events during the day – a breakfast session starting at 8am and a lunchtime session starting at 12 noon.

‘Minimising Tax and Maximising Income’ will be held at Gresham Wealth Management’s offices on Cecil Road, Hale, Altrincham.

  • Keyman Protection

    The death or prolonged illness of a key employee can put your business under financial strain. Keyman insurance compensates a business for the financial loss brought about by death or long term illness of a key employee.

    It provides a valuable cash injection to the business which can help with a potential loss of turnover and/or to provide funds to replace the key person.

  • Shareholder/Partnership Protection

    One of the great risks of a partnership or limited company is that one of your colleagues may die, with their share of the business passing to someone else. That person may have little interest in the business or be unable to meet the requirements of running the business. Equally a partner or shareholder who suffers a serious illness may not want to continue in the business after treatment and look to be compensated for their exit from the business.

  • Personal Injury Trusts

    Without a personal injury trust in place, you can lose entitlement to present and future means-tested state benefits, including local authority contributions to the cost of long-term care. We offer simple, jargon free advice to check if a personal injury trust is required on receipt of a claim, generally at no cost to you.
  • Retirement Planning

    Retirement Planning is a complex area which means different things to different people. How you plan for retirement can be wide and varied, but it must be planned for well in advance.

    You may have existing pension plans in place, like a company pension or personal pension plan or perhaps you’re just starting to save. Whatever your situation, Gresham Wealth Management Ltd can provide the right advice to create a retirement plan that’s tailor-made for you.

    Thanks again for your advice, you have given me the kick I needed to take control and I’m very grateful for that.
    Before I chose Gresham I spoke to a number of IFA’s but none of them gave me the same confidence I had when I spoke to Morven. Everything, both written and spoken, is explained in an easy to understand way. All my pensions have been dealt with extremely efficiently and I am very happy with the service I have received from everyone at Gresham.
    On behalf of Walk & Talk Group, I would like to thank you for the most informative, enjoyable and appropriate presentation you gave. Members found the session of great value and very useful.
    It’s lovely for us to have nice friendly advisors like Jonathan and Morven.
    My current investments are well on the positive side and I do thank you for your care and management of my financial affairs. I simply wouldn’t know how to manage them myself, and feel secure and confident knowing you are looking after these matters so professionally.
    Whilst my client’s situation is obviously very complicated, you made it very straight forward – quite an art!
    We are both very grateful for the time you spent with us in explaining various options. We certainly feel we now both have a much better understanding of our situation & the decisions which we need to consider moving forward.
