The Autumn Statement on 5th December 2012 announced changes to the rules around UK pensions.
There are two changes:
- The lifetime allowance for pension savings will be cut from £1.5m to £1.25m and
- The pension annual allowance will be cut from £50,000 per annum year to £40,000 per annum.
These changes will not take place until April 2014. This means there is time to plan for the changes.
