Does anyone know what the rules are governing how much you (or your company) can pay into an Executive Pension Plan in a year?

I believe it might be a combination of age, salary, length of service, shoe size etc. So maybe you could give me a link to an incomprehensible IR manual?

Thanks.

Yes - you are right.

However, whether putting money into an Executive pension is still a good way to go is one of a open debate at the moment.

Basically, old Gordon changed the rules a few years back and the benefits of having an EPP have now all but disappeared - which is a bugger for those of us who have been putting money into them in recent years.
