  • Budget 2015: New £1,000 tax allowance for savers


    19.03.15

    Following the announcement of big planned changes to encourage saving, Mark Abbs on his view of the announcements; "There is a clear intention by all political parties to reduce tax relief for pension contributions," he said. "Encouraging us to save less for retirement is a time bomb for the future as we live longer."

    There will be no change to the annual allowance for pension savings, which stays at £40,000.

    Mr Osborne said changing that would have involved "penalising moderately-paid, long-serving public servants, including police officers, teachers and nurses, and instead rewarding higher-paid graduates".
