GPs set to be given greater flexibility over pensions contributions


The problem is that GPs contribute to a whole of lifetime earnings scheme through Deferred Earnings This not a true pension scheme If we are deferring earnings then we shouldn’t be subject to Ann allowances or LTA When we take our pension we will be subjected to TAX like everyone else and yes that may mean taxing any lump sum provided by the scheme but this would be a much fairer way to proceed
