When asked why I choose to work a MLM business alongside my accountancy career, my answer is simple.

  1. I meet, and get the chance to help, a variety of people from all walks of life
  2. I love the products and enjoy learning about health and nutrition
  3. It is quite different from traditional business (but utilises similar skills) creating a sense of balance
  4. The team environment is great, we are all running our own business but share ideas, documents and personal triumphs
  5. By helping others to create a lifestyle of their choosing, I am developing a lifestyle of my choosing.

This was an easy decision.

RELEVANT READING: The Secrets to Success by Patric Chan, explains that success doesn’t have to be complicated.

Are you aware that the minimum retirement age is increasing to 55 from 6th April 2010?

This will mean that you will no longer be able to obtain an income or draw tax-free cash from your private pension before your 55th birthday except on the grounds of ill-health.

If you are aged 50 to 54 on 5th April 2010, you need to speak to your IFA as soon as possible to discuss your retirement plan as you will lose access to pension funds until you are 55 if you don’t act before 5th April 2010.  Please give your adviser time to administer your plans, there’s little point in approaching them at the end of March.

You have three options:

  1. Buy an annuity
  2. Transfer to an income drawdown scheme
  3. Do nothing and wait until your 55!

Retirement Road Sign with blue sky and clouds.Did you know that you do not need to physically retire to start taking income from your pension plan?  This means you could take your tax-free cash drawdown and reinvest it while you continue to work, giving you increased flexibility and control over your future.

Obviously taking cash from your fund will reduce its value so you need to talk to an adviser about the effect of this on the long term income you will derive from the plan.


The message here is clear, if you are 50 -54 years old and haven’t spoken to your IFA for some time, now is the time to do.  Don’t procrastinate, it could cost you dearly.


If you don’t have an IFA, I can recommend through personal and client experience, the advice of Chris Langdon at RHG 01438 345734. 

Please bear in mind that while accountants have a good working knowledge of retirement planning, most are not regulated or insured to give advice.  Make sure you are getting good quality advice bespoke to your needs from a professionally qualified  financial adviser.
