Technically Speaking: Understanding the Transfer Balance Cap series – Laying the foundations

While the Transfer Balance Cap (TBC) was first introduced in 2017, to restrict the amount that individuals can transfer into retirement phase pensions, it operates under a nuanced framework of credits and debits – and monitored through a Transfer Balance Account (TBA).

But, did you know that there is both a general TBC and a personal TBC? And, did you know that a client’s personal TBC is unlikely to be the same as the general TBC? Do you know how the TBA tracks transfer balance events and how those events are reported?

In this first bulletin of an upcoming “Understanding the Transfer Balance Cap” series of Technically Speaking bulletins, we will answer all these questions (and more) as we lay the foundations for developing a deeper understanding of the TBC regime which will be built on in future bulletins

CPD – 1.0 hour (on successful completion of the quiz)
