Family Businesses with Legacy Pension Schemes

15 September 2016

Adam Carruthers writes for Family Business United about what family businesses with Defined Benefit pension schemes can learn from BHS.

 

Events during 2016 highlight the significant impact that pension deficits relating to 'defined benefit' pensions schemes (also known as 'DB' or 'final salary' schemes) can have on businesses, employees, scheme members and pensioners.
