Tax benefits to the Moneyfarm Pension
Start saving into your Moneyfarm Pension to enjoy the generous tax benefits. You can claim tax relief on your pension contributions depending on how much tax you pay.
When you invest with Moneyfarm, you’ll automatically get your 20% tax relief – no waiting for HMRC. This equates to a 25% boost to your pension contributions.
If you’re a higher or additional rate taxpayer you’re entitled to more. Fill in your tax return form to reclaim your relief. You’ll receive your additional relief as either a rebate at the end of the tax year, a reduction in your tax liability, or HMRC will change your tax code.Start a pension

We keep costs simple and only charge you one fee at an account level; our management fee. The total cost of investing includes two further costs, the transaction cost (market spread) and underlying fund fee.
Whether you invest £10,000 or £1 million across your pension, ISA, or GIA, our investor-friendly fee structure will suit your needs. There will be no surprise flat fees or charges for rebalancing, transferring or for meeting targets.

The Moneyfarm Pension is a target date product, which means we automatically rebalance your portfolio to keep you on track to achieve your financial goals as you get closer to retirement.
Once you invest in your Moneyfarm Pension, you can invest time in the things that matter, knowing we’ve got your best interests at heart.

Once you reach the age of 55 you can take 25% of your pension savings as a tax free lump sum. If you choose to take this, you can then:
- Buy a flexible income drawdown

- Withdraw it and keep it as cash
- Do a mixture of the three
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a pension?
How do pensions work?
You can claim tax relief on your personal pension contributions relative to your income tax band. The investments in your pension will grow free from income tax and can be sold without incurring a Capital Gains Tax charge. You can usually take 25% of your total pension pot as a tax-free lump sum from the age of 55, and the remainder will be taxed according to your income tax band.
Once you’ve started to save into your pension, you will normally have to wait until you’re 55 before you can draw any money from it. You can then decide whether to go into income drawdown, buy an annuity with your savings, or do a combination of the two.
