Pensions & Retirement Planning
When it comes to providing for our retirement too many people are doing too little too late. Putting away even a small sum early on can make a big difference to the lifestyle you will enjoy when you retire. The golden rule for most people, is not to rely on the State alone. Most pensions benefit from tax breaks and nowadays you can even contribute to your pension if you don't work.
Pensions legislation has changed dramatically in recent years. To see how the changes may have affected you, contact us…... Pension legislation may be subject to further change.
Today there are a number of tax efficient ways of providing for a comfortable retirement.

- Stakeholder pension
- Personal Pension Plan (PPPs)
- Group Personal Pension Plan
- Executive Pension Plan
- Employers Schemes (Occupational Pensions)
- Self Invested Personal Pension Plan (SIPPs)

A PENSION IS A LONG TERM INVESTMENT THE FUND VALUE MAY FLUCTUATE AND CAN GO DOWN. YOUR EVENTUAL INCOME MAY DEPEND ON THE SIZE OF THE FUND AT RETIREMENT, FUTURE INTEREST RATES, AND TAX LEGISLATION
An Alternative Approach
Most advisers think that retirement planning means having a pension.
However, at Anand Associates, we believe in being more creative and transparent. You see, a pension plan is not the only way of producing future income and possibly not even the most appropriate. For example, tax relief on a pension is only really tax deferral.
We don't believe that anyone wants a pension - it's got connotations of being old and grey!
Or retirement planning, which has connotations of planning for the last phase in your life!
Instead, we believe that our clients want us to help them create Financial Independence - a point in time in their life where they can choose to work because they want to work rather than their current position of having to work.
Creating future passive income is key.
We have a wide range of practical and innovative solutions, along with genuine tax relief.

A pension is a long term investment. The fund value may fluctuate and can go down.
