New Year resolutions to save tax

10th January 2018 | Posted in: Pensions, Savings & Investments, Personal Tax, Planning New Year 2018

At this time of year we think about New Year’s resolutions. It is also a good time to start planning your tax affairs before the end of the tax year on 5th April.

An obvious tax planning point would be to maximise your ISA allowances for the 2017/18 tax year (currently £20,000 each).

You might also want to consider increasing your pension savings before 5 April 2018 as the unused annual pension allowance is lost after three years.

For those looking to do some inheritance tax planning it would be a good time to review (or make) your Will in the light of the recent change in the IHT nil rate band.
