In this article, the author discusses the changes of pension rules in Great Britain. He says that if a person's income is below £150,000, one is not affected by the changes, but if the relevant income is greater than £150,000, the person is affected. He notes that the pension rules are movable, so he suggests to maximise pension contributions before the rules change again.
