Jisa also carries a subscription limit for this tax year of £9,000 which is another opportunity for clients to maximise tax allowances while investing in their childrens' or grandchildrens' futures.

Pensions

Tax year end provides an excellent opportunity to make sure clients are maximising available pension allowances.

Clients can benefit from tax relief on pension contributions for up to 100% of their annual salary, to a maximum of up to £40,000 (lower if they are a higher earner or already taking drawdown income).

They can also carry forward unused annual allowance from previous years, not to mention the opportunities around maximising the lifetime allowance (LTA).

Tax and investments

The tax year end provides a great opportunity for advisers to review their clients’ portfolios and ensure they are making the most of the tax-efficient investment options available to them.

There’s talk of possible tax changes for capital gains, if not this tax year then the next so make sure your clients are making full use of their allowances this year.
