Popular Frequently Asked Questions

See all of our FAQ help points

Where do I enter details about my bank savings accounts
Enter these details as a Personal Investment in the Assets and Investments section.
What are 'Liquid Assets'
In Lifeplan 'Liquid Assets' are Cash, Current Accounts, Deposits and those assets that can be encashed in small amounts at short notice e.g. National Savings, ISAs, Shares, Unit Trusts, Investment Funds. They exclude assets which can only be sold whole or where encashment rights are limited e.g. Home, Pension Fund, Property and Business Investments.
What do you mean by Desired Annual Income?
Desired Annual Income is the level of income you would like to receive in your retirement after you have paid for any mortgage, loans, debts and tax.
Why do I need to make an allowance for Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on the sale of some assets e.g. home
Capital Gains Tax (CGT) could be a significant tax liability on the sale or disposal of an asset so we provide the facility for you to model such a liability in your LifePlan. However, the application of CGT is complex so we ask you to input a notional rate of CGT  based on the sale value of the asset. If you know the approximate CGT liability on the future sale of a specific asset you can select the most appropriate rate using the slider.
What does LifePlan mean by general estimate for growth?
This is how much you estimate your investments to grow by each year. Most investments can fall or rise in value on a daily basis and if you are unsure of what rate to enter for any of your investments you should consult the investment provider or a financial adviser to guide you.
