It’s likely that your circumstances have changed since you took out your protection. If your income has reduced or you are no longer needing to ensure your cover can pay off a mortgage because you received a financial gift, do you still need the same amount of cover?
On the other side of the coin, with changing circumstances, your cover could no longer be sufficient to protect what you need it to. Have you had a child or more children since you took out protection? Have you moved to a bigger property with a bigger mortgage?
Did you know that life insurance, as an example, can be paid for through your company as an expense, saving you tax, corporation tax and NI contributions? It’s not included as a benefit in kind either. There are also other protections policies that you can expense through your company...
Every penny counts and, by paying for your protection annually instead of monthly, you could save money, as most insurers charge interest on monthly payments.
This is exactly why we take out protection. To protect ourselves, care for our loved ones, look after our health, safeguard our business and protect our future.
For less than a day’s work a month you are likely to be able to cover the cost of any protection policy. It’s worth exploring as, often, our idea of the cost of protection products are greatly out of touch with reality!
Protection policies have a bad reputation and, to some degree, rightly so. There was a time when it was difficult to make a claim and insurers failed to pay out. There’s no need for you to be anxious about this now though. Just research the claim payouts made by any insurer for any product and you’ll likely see numbers over 90%.
Not only can you enjoy the benefits that protection products will bring to you, your family, your health, business and future but you can do so tax efficiently. Most protection products can be expensed through your business, saving you both tax and corporation tax.
