[195427]</p><p> </p><p>DAVID GAUKE</p><p>At Budget 2014 the Chancellor announced changes which increase the flexibility of pensions, some of which took effect on 27<sup>th</sup> March 2014.</p><p> </p><p>The increases to the small pot and trivial commutation limits are believed to benefit women proportionately more than men, as they are more likely to have smaller pension wealth. Reducing the minimum income requirement for flexible drawdown is also expected to have a disproportionate impact on women, as they are less likely to have a large pension pot than men.</p><p>HMRC's Tax Information and Impact Note presents further information on the estimated impacts of the 2014 changes:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/293844/TIIN_8070_8062_8202_8132_8133_increasing_pension_flexibility.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/293844/TIIN_8070_8062_8202_8132_8133_increasing_pension_flexibility.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>The proposed 2015 changes will enable individuals to access their defined contribution pension savings as they wish at the point of retirement, subject to their marginal rate of income tax (rather than the current 55% charge for full withdrawal). The changes the Government proposes will entitle everyone to full flexibility regardless of their gender.</p><p> </p>
