Prudential is to hold a series of financial planning seminars for advisers across the UK, to help them make better use of the wide range of tax allowances available without crossing the government's avoidance line.
The seminars, which will take place throughout September and October, are held in conjunction with consultancy Technical Connection, which will feature as guest presenters.
The seminars aim to show advisers how to make the best use of tax allowances available in the UK and offer practical guidance on how to stay on the right side of the HMRC's position on ‘aggressive' tax avoidance.
Prudential head of business development Vince Smith-Hughes said: "The
aim of these sessions is to give advisers the tools and knowledge to best demonstrate the true value of the advice they give in the current environment.
"Ensuring that clients take full advantage of the tax allowances available can demonstrably add to their wealth and income, without increasing their risk exposure."
Technical Connection joint managing director Tony Wickenden added: "At the events, as well as practical tax and financial planning steps we will also be providing much needed detail and clarity on the latest HMRC position on ‘aggressive/abusive' tax avoidance, and the positive opportunity this presents to financial planners."
The sessions are free to attend and will be treated as two hours of accredited structured continuing professional development by the Personal Finance Society and the Institute of Financial Planning.
Places can be booked via the Prudential website.
