Budget 2015 – What the pension levy changes mean?

Rob O’Neill, Senior Financial Advisor

Budget 2015 has been hailed as the first non-austerity budget since the economic collapse of 2008 with good news all round with changes in Income Tax and USC rates. Perhaps, one of the most forward thinking measures of Budget 2015 is the abolition of the levy on private pensions.

The 0.6% levy is due to expire at the end of this year, while the 0.15% levy will come to an end next year. Finally, the combined levy of 0.75% that applied for 2014 will be reduced in 2014, with no levy planned for pensions in subsequent years.
