Pensions for the Self Employed (25 second read)

If you have established a successful business which is profitable, then you pay tax on the annual profits. One of the very few remaining ways for you to shelter tax is by contributing to a pension, however few business owners use pension legislation to maximum effect. Most have scope to do additional tax planning. With marginal tax rates so high, extracting wealth from your business tax effectively is key to building personal wealth.

As a sole trader or partner you will be eligible to take out either a Personal Pension or a PRSA. We can explain the difference between these two products and guide you in your choice.

There are a wide range of charging structures available in the market. Many pensions have high charges and the effect of this over time can be substantial. A good charging structure could easily enhance the eventual value of your pension by €20,000 or more, even for a modest pension. For a large pension the difference could be as much as €100,000. Making sure you have the best product now will result in a higher level of pension income when you retire.

As we have agencies with all the main life companies we can provide access to a range of providers. Very often you will obtain a better product through us, than you would have access to through your Bank or tied agent.

As Specialist Investment Advisers we place huge importance on the investment of your funds. You need to have a plan for what you are going to do if the market continues increasing, and what you are going to do if there is a period of market weakness. Both scenarios are likely to feature so you should have a strategy in place to take advantage of both. If you retain us to arrange your pension we will provide you with detailed investment advice.

There is no fee for our service as we are remunerated by way of commission from the product provider.

I would highly recommend Eoghan to anyone looking for expert financial advice. From my first meeting with Eoghan, the level of service has been exceptional. He's extremely knowledgeable, very patient and explains things in way that you can easily understand. I'm delighted with the product he found for me and I hope to be a client of his for years to come.

I dealt with Eoghan regarding my pension. It wasn't a clear cut situation and Eoghan went above and beyond to explain all details and possible scenarios with me. Eoghan constantly kept me updated and aware of any new information without being prompted. Eoghan was efficient, knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to deal with. I would not hesitate to use Highfield Financial Planning in the future and would recommend this reliable company with confidence.

Patricia Duggan21/3/2022

Eoghan is a pleasure to deal with. Eoghan has a deep knowledge base and is always up to date with latest market developments. I couldn't recommend Eoghan highly enough.

Colm Ryan21/7/2022

As a complete novice when it comes to pensions I was delighted to come across Eoghan. He explained everything that I needed to know and do. He is very professional yet explains everything in ‘lay’ terms. Even during Covid he kept in touch through Zoom and e mail. Thanks Eoghan

Sheila Weller21/5/2022

My partner and I did a financial plan with Eoghan, with a number of scenarios for our future. The final product was very professional, and provided proactive investment and protection options which Eoghan carried out fully for us. We felt it was very good value for peace of mind for our financial future!

Tim Lee21/5/2021

Excellent service provided by Eoghan since I took the decision to take my pension out of the Banks and use a financial advisor to help me maximise incomes from the market. He is always attentive and quick to offer current valuable advice. Happy to recommend Eoghan to anyone interested in getting sound financial advice.

Niall Hearn2/3/2020

For pensions and advice, Eoghan is an expert, professional and thorough. He has a knack for explaining and summarising this important and complex subject in layman's terms. This helps enormously, making you comfortable that you are making the right financial choices for you. He is also a patient and nice guy to deal with.

Bill Glennon18/9/2019

As well as advising me on the performance of my existing personal pension & arranging life insurance policies, Eoghan is also now overseeing our business needs. So far, he has implemented an employee pension scheme & is advising on corporate co-director & key-person insurance. I have found him to be exceptionally knowledgeable and honest and wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to others for either business or personal pensions/investments etc.

Dawn Richardson10/10/2019

We first met when i was made redundant and needed help with moving my pension. Since then, he has advised me on my life insurance policy for my mortgage and helped me to get a much better deal than I had with my bank. He is extremely helpful and I can ask him anything without feeling like it's a stupid question!
