Additional awareness sessions

Further to EPN 500, we are pleased to inform you of two additional Employer Pension Tax Awareness sessions that will take place in London on 17 August 2017.

The sessions aim to support this year’s Pension Savings Statements exercise.

As previously, we have arranged with MyCSP to contract with Origen to provide the sessions for HR colleagues who are responsible for arranging tax sessions and who provide support to members.

The sessions will be free to attend and will aim to:

  • provide an overview of pensions and tax;
  • improve general understanding of Pension Savings Statements;
  • improve understanding of what causes a breach of the Lifetime or Annual Allowances;
  • highlight the importance of accurate data;
  • provide information about tax support for members, including key deadlines and action to take.

The details of the sessions are as follows:







17 August 2017




National Audit Office

157-197 Buckingham Palace Road






Session 1:  10:30am – 1:30pm


Session 2:  

2pm – 5pm
