It's nearly new year...new tax year. Are you ready for it?
Most people know that the end of one tax year and the start of another is a good time to organise their finances. But what are the deadlines? What are the allowances you need to think about? And - the big one - what can you do to save tax?
In your March issue of Thinking Ahead you can find the answers to important questions like these. We've included a new tax year checklist to help you make sure you won't wake up on 6 April wondering what you should have done.
We'll help you to look at issues such as using your capital gains tax allowance, making the most of ISAs and - on a retirement theme - how you could use pension contributions to lower your tax bill or even qualify for extra benefits.
In Thinking Ahead you can find out about:
- Carrying forward unused allowance for tax relief
- The new pension rules and how you could access your money
- What the new state pension forcast service is all about
- What to do if you've lost track of a pension
