Managing your funds

Are you sure you are in the most suitable fund, according to your current needs and lifestyle? As it changes, it is important to review your pension to ensure you are in the most suitable saving, providing you with the best possible returns for your capacity for risk.   Our Expert Advisors are here to help you decide on the level of risk you want to take and which founds and assets you want to invest in.

Maximising your Contributions

Wouldn’t it be great to maximize your pension contribution while reducing your tax bills? If your income is taxable under Schedule E or Schedule D (typically employees), your maximum allowable pension contribution is related to your age and expressed as a percentage of your gross income.  The maximum gross income figure is capped at €115,000 – anything above this limit doesn’t qualify for tax relief.

This means that you can receive income tax relief (20% or 40% depending on the highest rate of income tax that you pay) up to the limits outlined below:

Tax Relief by Age Bracket

Under 30

30-39

40-49

50-54

55-59

60 and over

15%

20%

25%

30%

35%

40%

 

For example, if you are 42 and earn €50,000 per annum from employment, you are eligible to obtain tax relief against total pension contributions of up to €12,500 per annum (25% of your gross salary).

Income tax is dependent on individual circumstances; however, typically 40% would be applicable in this instance.

With 40% tax relief, a contribution of €12,500, will cost you €7,500 in your take-home pay.
