Following BHS, Carillion and other high profile corporate failures involving pensions, the pressures are increasing on company sponsors to fund their pension schemes more and more quickly.

There are so many factors in play:

  • Pressure from the Pensions Regulator, scheme trustees and other stakeholders
  • A recent government white paper which could significantly change how pensions are funded
  • New vehicles to take the pension liability off your balance sheet
  • New sanctions against company directors, both financial and criminal

At the same time, research shows that the FTSE 100 companies have an overall “surplus” on an accounting measure – although this does not usually mean you can switch off any deficit repair contributions. (Source: LCP’s Accounting for Pensions 2018 report)
