Years in Business
Gareth has been our Financial Advisor for some time and to date has been true to his word. We wish him success and would highly recommend his services
As Independent financial advisors we can also provide advice to businesses. This is becoming more crucial with the introduction of workplace pensions. With good planning in place this transition can be brought in with minor disruption.
Have you an old Group Pension that has been running for a few years? Is this compatible with the new regulations? These scheme were set up under commission rules which no longer exist, so it worth looking at to make sure you are not paying too much.
Other issues such as shareholder protection, succession planning, key person insurance and group income protection should all be considered as they can add value to what you offer employees thus improving staff retention.
The success of your business depends on a combination of factors.
A good product or service; mitigation of risk; optimisation of opportunities; and your management team and employees.
Corporate financial planning is about far more than arranging pensions and employee benefits. It involves sharing your business goals and making sure you’re in the best possible position to achieve them.
Employee benefits are the part of an employee’s total remuneration that is not paid as salary. With the introduction of Auto-Enrolment, employee benefits are now at the forefront of importance to employers. The benefits an employer can provide are extensive, ranging from pensions and life cover, to income protection and private medical insurance. Putting together the right package for your staff can be critically important to the success of your business.
So why bother with benefits? well some employers believe there is a link between the benefits they offer and the recruitment and retention of staff.
Specific reasons for offering benefits include:
- Lower costs through bulk purchases
- Meeting legislative obligations
- Staff Recruitment & Retention
Everyone needs to plan for their retirement even business owners. We provide high quality independent retirement planning advice owners and directors of businesses on their pension options. One option is making contributions to a UK Registered Pension Scheme as this is considered to be one of the most effective ways to make provision for the future because in many circumstances an individual and/or their employer can obtain tax relief in respect of the contributions.
Key person insurance
Is as important as insuring your stock, equipment, building or indeed any other business asset. This can help bridge the financial gap created by the death or serious illness of designated key individuals on whom the revenue or profits of the business depends, enabling the business to continue without them.
By establishing business protection arrangements you could avoid a difficult situation. Ask yourself if a main shareholder died could the remaining shareholders afford to buy their shares from the estate?
Providing a safety net to protect your business is an necessity. Proceeds from a life cover policy could help to ensure that key individuals are replaced, business debt is protected and shares from the deceased partner’s/ director’s estate can potentially be purchased.
Business Loan Protection
It is important to consider if the business has loans to repay how the death or serious illness of a key person could lead to the business inability to repay the loan and put at risk future loans.
