There are excellent tax benefits for both companies and employees contributing to a company scheme. Companies can usually avail of corporation tax relief by treating contributions as an allowable expense whereas Employees may claim relief at their marginal tax rate.
A company pension is a scheme set up by the company in trust to provide retirement benefits for those within it. Whilst companies may contribute to these schemes they are not obliged to do so. There are two types of Company Pensions.
Defined Benefit: These schemes A defined benefit pension plan is a type of pension plan in which an employer pays a specified pension, lump-sum or combination that is based on the employee’s salary and years of service.
Defined Contribution: In these schemes, both employer and Employee funds are invested, and the proceeds used to buy a pension at retirement. The value of benefits payable from DC schemes depends on the amount of contributions paid, the investment return achieved less any fees and the cost of buying the benefits.
