Champion Financial Planning - Pensions

Champion Financial Planning is focussed on developing, implementing and monitoring bespoke long-term plans for individuals and their families. Their aim is to give their clients the certainty that they can enjoy life to the full now as well as long into the future. They work closely with their professional partners to keep their clients one step ahead, giving them the peace of mind that their finances and investments are working according to their objectives and as efficiently as possible.

The benefits attached to Salary Sacrifice pension contributions can be a very desirable and tax efficient attraction for freelance contractors, therefore it is worth taking some time out to consider if this could be a good fit for your own personal circumstances. To help you to better understand and explore your options, we have prepared some detailed and easy to follow Salary Sacrifice FAQ’s HERE.

To make things even easier for you, Champion have a pension scheme that is simple for all contractors to join and benefit from. We have even made it possible to transfer in any of your old pension schemes or for you contribute additional funds (if that is right for you of course).
