Financial Options for Directors and Employees
In order to recruit and retain the best staff, it is important that companies ensure that they are offering the most competitive benefits package. We have many years experience advising in the corporate sector and as such would be happy to review or consider afresh any of the following areas:
Company Pension Schemes
Since the introduction of auto-enrolment, all companies should have a pension scheme in place for their employees but what is the best scheme and as every company now has to have a pension, what makes your employee benefits package more attractive than your competitors? Do your staff understand in simple terms know how a pension works and how it could benefit them in the long term.
Director/Partner Retirement Planning and Exit Strategies
Pensions have for many years been seen as a valuable part of additional tax efficient savings available to the savvy investor but with the continued availability of “Carry Forward” they can play an important role as part of an exit strategy for those Directors/Partners nearing retirement.
Key Person Assurance and Shareholder/Partnership Protection
What would the impact to your business be if either you or a key member of staff were to die or be off on long term sick leave? Could the business keep running, if so, what would the financial consequences be and could anything be done to mitigate these? Likewise, if your business partner or co-Director were to suddenly pass away, could you afford to buy their shares from the surviving spouse? Sometimes these figures can be huge and not everyone has access to a large sum of cash to enable a smooth buy out. If this is something that concerns you, talk to us as we have many years’ experience putting comprehensive business protection in place.
Profits built up and remaining on the company books in these days of low interest rates look less and less attractive. If you are looking for a longer term solution and would prefer to pay your tax at a point when you choose rather than when the Inland Revenue does, you might want to use our experience to talk you through the options available.
If you have slightly more esoteric requirements in mind, please feel free to contact us as it may be something we overlooked!
