Corporate Financial Planning

Corporate financial planning is about far more than arranging employee benefits and pensions. It involves making certain you've taken all the right measure to be in the best position to achieve your business goals and the necessary steps to protect your business.

Below are just a few of the areas that we can help your business with:

Corporate Protection

Shareholder Protection

The legal right and financial ability to purchase the interests of another shareholder following their death or serious illness.

Partnership Protection

A policy that enables surviving partners to buy out a proportion of the business that was owned by the departing/deceased partner.

Key Person Protection

Providing critical Illness cover for essential team members, can help ensure the continued success and stability of your business. Critical illness cover is a policy that can help cover the direct and indirect costs associated with the serious illness or injury of a key worker.

Auto Enrolment

Automatic enrolment is the new pension reform that has been introduced by the Government. Enrolment is phased depending on the size of your company, with all enrolled by February 2018.

Auto enrolment will encourage all employees to contribute to a workplace pension scheme in an attempt to move away from a reliance on the State pension. Employers have a real responsibility to ensure that their employees make adequate provision to their retirement income.

Developing the right strategy for implementation will ensure that you are not only compliant with the new legislation, but that auto enrolment has a positive impact on your business and staff.

The value of your pension can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount invested.

A pension is a long term investment. The fund may fluctuate and can go down. Your eventual income may depend upon the size of the fund at retirement, future interest rates and tax leglisation.
