The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has today commented on the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) Levy Policy Statement 2018/19 (click here).
Caroline Escott, Policy Lead: Investment and Defined Benefit at the PLSA, commented:
“The PPF’s Policy Statement today is good news for DB schemes, with confirmation of a 10% reduction in the Levy – which at £550m is its lowest ever – and news that two thirds of schemes will see a lower levy. We are also pleased to see that SMEs will see both a 30% reduction in bills and a simplified process for certifying Deficit Reduction Contributions.
“We’d like to express our thanks to the PPF for their continued close engagement with the PLSA, our members and the broader industry in developing these rules.”
