Money Marketing;3/31/2005, p18
The article reports that B&CE Benefit Schemes has issued a pension manifesto calling on the main political parties to address the impending pension crisis. Making Workplace Savings Work Better forms the basis of a campaign by the employee benefits provider to establish a pension partnership between the Government, individuals, employers, trade unions and the financial services industry. Its key issues include extending automatic enrolment and encouraging joint contributions from employers and employees, incentives for lower to middle-income-earners to save, setting a single flat rate of tax relief at 30 per cent, introducing special corporate tax breaks and offering information and guidance.
