Life Insurance isn’t as expensive as you might think – especially if your company pays for it with Relevant Life Expert.

The perception of how much life insurance costs is nearly 400% above the actual cost, according to a survey from Critical Research.
From a poll of 1,011 people, 48% cited affordability as the main reason for not obtaining life insurance. On average, those surveyed thought £100,000 of life cover would cost £50.98 per month, and 47% said they had no idea how much life insurance really costs… Life insurance can start from as little as £6 per month and is an important consideration if you are self-employed and the main breadwinner.
This research highlights that people are not protecting themselves with life cover because they’re not aware of the actual costs involved. As a result, it is vital that this misconception is addressed in order to inform people that there is such a thing as cost-effective life insurance. This is where Relevant Life Expert steps in.

“LIFE COVER WAS NOT SOMETHING I HAVE EVER THOUGHT ABOUT UNTIL I HAD CHILDREN. AS THE MAIN EARNER IN OUR FAMILY, I WAS CONSCIOUS THAT IF SOMETHING SHOULD HAPPEN TO ME, MY FAMILY WOULD BE LEFT IN A TRICKY FINANCIAL POSITION. WHEN I DISCOVERED I COULD ACCESS LIFE COVER IN SUCH A TAX-EFFICIENT WAY THROUGH RELEVANT LIFE EXPERT, I WAS SOLD!”

Save Tax with a Relevant Life Plan

No one enjoys paying out on insurance premiums but why not take advantage of a great “tax break” when it comes to providing life assurance for your family?

It’s called a Relevant Life Plan and it works as follows;

Most directors pay for family life assurance out of their “taxed” net income and therefore for example a £100 per month premium has really cost approximately £145 when you add back in the tax and N.I.

If you were to pay for this via a Relevant life Plan then your company can make the payments for you and its classed as a business expense therefore saving on Corporation Tax. In this instance the £100 per month would now have a real cost of £80 per month. More good news is that it’s NOT a P11d benefit and the policy is written into a special trust which means on death the proceed go straight into the trust (for the benefit of your family) and not back to the company.
