Sarah is a doctor and a high earner. She’s prioritised planning for her retirement. Great, but that means she now has a pension pot nearing £1 million.
It’s a nice problem to have, but a large pension pot is a problem all the same.
The Lifetime Allowance (LTA) means that with further contributions she might incur an extra tax charge when she retires.
This popular Octopus planning scenario explains how a venture capital trust (VCT) can help suitable clients like Sarah to continue investing tax-efficiently for retirement.

Key VCT risks:
- The value of a VCT investment, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise. Investors may not get back the full amount they invest.
- Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may change in the future.
- Tax reliefs depend on the VCT maintaining its VCT-qualifying status.
- VCT shares are by their nature high risk, their share price may be volatile and they may be hard to sell.
VCTs are not suitable for everyone. Any recommendation should be based on a holistic review of your client’s financial situation, objectives and needs. We do not offer investment or tax advice.
