New! Enhanced pension options

I have been asked a number of times to add some options to the Pension calculations, and today I have done just that.

Auto-enrolment pensions have specific rules about how to calculate the amount which should be contributed – overtime and bonuses are included, for example, but the contribution is only on a percentage of the “Qualifying Earnings”. Qualifying Earnings are your employment income between a lower and upper threshold, which from 6th April 2019 will be £6,136 and £50,000 respectively.

Other pension types have more flexibility, which is why the Salary Calculator has been updated, and if you select an Employer, Salary Sacrifice or Personal pension, you can now choose whether to have contributions based on your whole salary or on your qualifying earnings, and whether or not to include overtime and bonuses in the calculations.

Why not head over to The Salary Calculator, click on the Pension tab and see whether these options might affect your take-home pay?
