It can be a challenge for firms to keep abreast of all the changes and be aware of how they could potentially affect the advice provided to clients.
With the raft of changes brought about by Pension Freedoms, IHT main residence nil rate band, Lifetime ISAs, Help to Buy ISAs, Personal Savings allowance and the Mortgage Credit Directive, it is essential firms ensure that the recommendations made reflect the latest position.
These changes taken together with the regulatory risk involved in business such as pension transfers, trust related advice, EIS/BPR recommendations and product switching mean it is vital to identify any issues before it is too late.
