LTA abolishment

An update from HMRC

The lifetime allowance is being abolished from 6 April, however as you may be aware, there have been some challenges faced by platforms, advisers and clients in navigating the new rules due to delays receiving guidance from HMRC.

On 4 April, HMRC released a newsletter in which it advises some clients to delay taking benefits, or transferring their pension until it can remedy incorrect legislation. The newsletter can be viewed here.

HMRC advise that certain groups of people should delay action until regulations are passed through Parliament to correct the legislation.

Those affected by HMRC’s advice relate to any case which involves:

  • scheme specific tax-free cash protection
  • a transfer with enhanced protection
  • enhanced protection and primary protection cases with protected lump sum rights of more than £375,000
  • the payment of a lump sum death benefit from funds which crystallised before 6 April 2024
  • any transfer from drawdown to a QROPS
  • any transfer to a QROPS which involves pre-April 2006 benefits.

In respect of the above cases, HMRC state that ‘schemes should advise members to request a delay to the payment/defer their request to transfer’.

Therefore, if you have a client impacted by the above events, please contact us to agree next steps and to provide confirmation as to whether you wish to proceed with the previously provided instruction.

Please contact 0370 414 7000 and select option 8 to be put through to the relevant team

Target Market Documents

and our Consumer Duty Hub

Consumer Duty is part of the FCA’s ongoing efforts to further enhance consumer protection in financial services. Consumer Duty combines an overarching principle that a firm must act to deliver good outcomes for retail customers, with expected behaviours and a number of consumer outcomes financial firms must meet and be able to demonstrate, to ensure they are acting in the best interests of their customers.

At Curtis Banks it’s always been our mission to help our customers thrive in retirement by providing flexible products, innovative technology, and complementary services to meet their needs, whatever stage of their journeys with us, so the fundamentals of Consumer Duty are not new to us.

Target Market documents are designed to ensure that our products are targeted and advised appropriately, to avoid offering unsuitable products to customers. By providing our advisers with clear and detailed Target Market documents, we can collectively ensure that our mutual clients have products that meet their needs and expectations. You can see our Target Market Documents below.
