Frequently asked questions for Business & Corporate advisers
Is it possible to tax efficiently provide life cover and serious illness protection for directors and employees?
Yes, Relevant Life assurance is now available which allows businesses to protect employees against these risks. Benefits are tax free to the employee whilst not classed as a benefit in kind, and neither employer or employee has to pay National Insurance on the premiums.
What other benefit can you advise upon to help protect myself and/or employees in the event of ill health?
We can advise upon Income Protection Insurance (IPI) which is designed to protect the income of employees. It provides a tax-free monthly benefit after a deferred period to help replace lost income.
I’ve heard that it is possible to purchase insurance online, is this advisable?
It is vital to obtain independent advice on your protection needs to accurately assess the amount, duration and type of cover to suit your circumstances. We believe this is only possible after a qualified adviser discusses your individual needs and objectives upon such important issues.
Can you help me to extract profits from my business tax efficiently?
Our advisers are able to recommend several types of tax efficient investments to help you personally benefit from surplus cash in your business. This may use pension planning where valuable tax allowances are available.
I am thinking of selling my business and retiring, how can you help me plan?
Early planning is essential as you can imagine at such an important time. We are able to discuss your objectives for retirement and create a cashflow report to demonstrate how your assets can sustain your desired lifestyle. This helps give our clients peace of mind and give them a plan which we review together.
There may be related consideration such as Inheritance Tax and how to best use pension funds which we are able to explain and advise upon.
