Pension Tax Calculator

Pension Tax calculator

This calculator incorporates a set of planning assumptions to allow you to examine the effects of setting up international bond as a series of segments, or identical policies. To make the bond as efficient as it could be, it is vital to set the policy up as a series of segments.

Tempting as it is for your clients to take their pension fund as cash, beware the sting in the tail – while they can normally take a 25% tax-free lump sum, remember they’ll pay tax on the rest (at a rate linked to all income received in that year).

Our calculator shows them the amount and percentage rate of income tax payable on their pension fund if it is withdrawn in addition to other taxable income.

Please enter figures without commas i.e. 54000
