GPs set to be given greater flexibility over pensions contributions


The principles the governments seems to run on are: 1)Make it complicated so nobody even those at HMRC knows and you can make it up prn. 2)Give with the right and take with the left. Trust is lost in the NHS pension and tax system. God knows some new rules might come in to raid your pension. I choose to pay the tax, have it now. At least I know how much is there rather than the "pension growth that one can only know after 18 months"and no one can raid my bank unless they do quantitative easing again. It does not pay to work. Have a beer it is far more enjoyable and easily understandable. I am happy to pay the VAT. At least I know how much it is.
