Lifetime allowance

The maximum value of the pension pot which can be accumulated during an individual’s working life without incurring a tax penalty (the “Lifetime Allowance”) will be reduced from the current level £1.8m to £1.5m from April 2012. Transitional arrangements are expected for people whose pension pots already exceed the new limits.
