Standard Life launches adviser tax optimiser

Standard Life has launched a tax optimisation toolkit to support multi-wrapper retirement income planning and help advisers deal efficiently with the demand for advice, Alastair Black has said.

“Being able to demonstrate significant tax savings to clients underlines the value of advice. That is why this has been developed in close partnership with advisers to ensure it is genuinely useful,” the head of financial planning propositions said.

Part of the Accelerate Programme, the tool supports a tax advice policy framework, enabling IFAs to provide tax-efficient retirement planning.

The toolkit includes a withdrawal optimiser offering, designed to support client reviews and help advisers put a monetary value on their tax planning recommendations.
