Save for your own pension

Being self-employed has its benefits, but in terms of pensions, it’s not a major advantage. To ensure you get a retirement pension in addition to the National Insurance Scheme it’s therefore up to you to sort this out. With a defined-contribution pension you can get up to 50 per cent of your savings in tax deductions. The more you take out in salary, the more you save in tax. You can save up to 7 per cent of your salary for your pension between 1–12 G

Who is this suitable for?

This is a form of saving that is best suited to self-employed people, freelancers, people with sole proprietorships or who run a business alongside their job.

  • If you have a salary of over 7.1 G we recommend you begin this saving.
  • If you have a salary between 6 and 7.1 G, you can think about beginning this saving.

The DNB savings app Spare
