Tax advantages to a personal pension plan

1. Income Tax Relief

Income Tax Relief (Subject to Revenue Limits) is provided at your marginal rate of tax on contributions. Therefore, if you are top rate tax payer for every €4 you get €2.67. This compares favourably with the now redundant SSIA of for every €4 you got €1.

2. No DIRT or CGT

As your contributions accumulate in your fund there is no tax on any growth i.e no DIRT or CGT.

In addition, the austerity levy on pension funds no longer applies from 2016.

3. Tax-Free Cash Option on Retirement

Next, is the advantage of the tax-free cash option on retirement, capped at €200,000.

4. Approved Retirement Fund

The fourth tax advantage is the Approved Retirement Fund (ARF) as a post-retirement tax planning tool which allows you minimise or perhaps even eliminate your tax in retirement.

5. Tax Free Death Benefits and Capital Acquisition Tax

The final tax advantage to highlight is the Tax Free Death BenefitsCapital Acquisition Tax may apply depending on the beneficiary and the thresholds.
