Clare Moffat, head of business development at Royal London comments on the Budget.

“The Chancellor’s decision to raise the threshold at which the tapered annual allowance kicks in is welcome but the pension tax system remains overly complex. In reality the Chancellor has missed the ideal opportunity to massively simplify the system by removing the taper altogether.”
