  • the second Budget of 2015, including a tapered reduction in the Annual Allowance for high earners, changes to Pension Input Periods, and a Green Paper on possible reform of pensions taxation
  • governance of Defined Contribution (DC) schemes - in particular the new requirement for an annual statement from the Chair of Trustees
  • The Pensions Regulator’s 2015 Funding Statement and Employer’s guide to the Scheme Funding Code of Practice
  • an update on the end of contracting-out on a salary-related basis from April 2016
  • ‘Section 75’ (Debt on Employer) issues for intra-group secondments
