Now that summer is behind us we thought we’d take this opportunity to share some thoughts with you and remind you of the important services that you can (and should) be taking advantage of.
We are also very proud to announce that once again, we are in Citywire New Model Adviser Top 100! This celebrates the best of the financial planning community and we strive very hard to be the best of the best!
Your long term plans
If the summer break has prompted you to reassess your desires and aspirations, it’s the perfect moment for us to meet up and figure out how we can turn these aspirations into reality. Our cash flow modelling software can make all of these scenarios (and more) come alive and show you in real time what your financial future could look like…
To work or not to work?
As you approach a significant life transition, such as stopping work, what concerns you the most? Is it wanting to know if you can afford the lifestyle you desire, or, what will you actually do on a day to day basis once the novelty of not working wears off?
Our Pre-Retirement Service is designed to provide you with the support you need during this journey. We are here to facilitate those essential conversations, assist in the planning process, and help you execute your retirement or life change plan with confidence.
A one stop shop for business owners
This year we joined forces with a team of professional advisers to offer an all-encompassing service tailored to the needs of business owners. Our objective is to support you in preparing the business for sale. By working together, we can ensure that the sale is structured correctly and from a personal perspective, shows you what life will look like afterwards.
Now is a good time to also think about the following and get ahead of the new year rush:-
- Tax Free Allowances– make sure you are using up ISA and pension allowances for you and the family.
- ISA hack – if you have a child between 16 and 17, there is a quirk which gives them a full cash ISA allowance of £20,000, plus a Junior ISA allowance of £9,000. So, for 2 years, you could shelter nearly £30,000 per year in a tax free environment for their future benefit.
- Lasting Power of Attorney – we sent out an email recently about the importance of having an LPA in place before you find yourself in a position where you need one. If you missed it or would like to revisit it, please click here.
- VCTs – we have already been in touch about this year’s offerings but don’t forget to include them in your tax return if you did them last year.
Whilst we all weather the rollercoaster ride of investment markets, good planning can offer more stability as well as a tangible outcome – something that in this day and age is rare!
Please do get in touch if any of this strikes a chord.
