Calling all Employees and Self Employed Individuals – pension advice available

If you are an employee or are self employed, then you have a once off opportunity to maximise your tax savings and increase your pension contributions.

The Opportunity; You may be able to make a once off, lump sum payment into your pension before the tax deadline of October 31st (November 12th if you’re filing and paying your tax return online using the Revenue online service) and offset it against last year’s tax bill.

This will allow you to increase your retirement/pension savings and save tax!

3 Easy Steps

  1. Contact your tax advisor or accountant and calculate the amount you can contribute to your pension based upon 2018 income and/or contact us for pension advice!
  2. Pay the amount you wish to save to your pension contract by October 31st, who will then issue you with proof of payment. The pension company must receive your payment by the October 31st, so please don’t delay!
  3. Contact your local Revenue office with proof of payment by October 31st, (November 12th if you’re filing and paying your tax return online using the Revenue online service) stating that this contribution has been paid against your 2018 earnings.
