The article reports on the appeal of the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) to the British Members of the Parliament to reconsider the pension tax changes. The NAPF is concerned that constant changes to the legislation will undermine scheme sponsor confidence in pensions and break the tax simplification framework of the government in 2006. According to NAPF chief executive Joanne Segars, the proposal will not only affect the pensions of top-rate taxpayers but the low-earners as well.
