GPs could face huge tax bill as inflation pushes pension pots over annual limits


The previous few comments are spot on. I'm 50 average earning practice and have to dip in and out of the scheme. In reality I'm a fool still working full time as I'm taxed st 60%+ because of the pension changes and the only way to avoid / reduce that is to reduce sessions. Everyone who is working full time now and not affected yet is probably relatively new to GP and understanably has more important things to worry about. However, you'll find out sooner than you think that vitriolics about 'high earners' are misinformed. Don't worry, the system will stuff you royally soon! Look into the details of your future pension and you'll cry.
