An individual Death in Service life assurance policy available for employees of the company which includes directors. Your business pays the premiums based on the level of cover. If the person dies or is diagnosed with a significant illness or a terminal illness whilst in employment during the term, the plan pays a fixed, one-off lump sum.

Who can take out a Relevant Life Plan?

To be eligible for a Relevant Life Plan, the person covered must be an employee of a UK Limited business.

If you or an employee leaves the company?

There are two options which must be exercised within 90 days of leaving:

  • The new employer can apply to continue the policy.

  • The former employee can continue with the policy personally.

Doesn’t my company receive the pay-out not me?

No. We write all Relevant Plans into what is called a Trust. This is really important as it ensures any pay-out is not treated as a business receipt but goes directly to the family, quickly (avoiding the legal process) and tax efficiently (avoiding inheritance tax). We do this as standard and it’s completely free with us.

Trusts are not regulated by the FCA.

Why not just take out personal cover?

You can though it will actually cost you more. Paying personally, once you factor in your gross wage (ie. before tax is applied to your wage), the difference is quite large. You could save up to 49% on your premiums by simply allowing your business to pay.

“Ash was a pleasure to work with and helped me to understand the complex options involved in various aspects of my insurance. He also helped me save a fair amount of money by moving some outgoings from personal to business ones which also reduced my tax as well. Would highly recommend.”
