What is the lifetime allowance?

The lifetime allowance (LTA) is the overall amount of pension savings that you can have at retirement without incurring a lifetime allowance tax charge.

The lifetime allowance was first introduced in April 2006 and has been subject to substantial change in recent years.

The standard lifetime allowance in tax year 2017/18 is £1 million.
