Expert advice to make your business a happier, more prosperous place.

Time is rarely on your side when you’re running a business. It takes commitment, hard work, determination, and perseverance to succeed. When it comes to your business's finances and indeed your own, a helping hand could ease the pressure and keep corporate services running smoothly.

We help companies of all sizes with corporate services from setting up auto-enrolment pension schemes to educating staff on maximising their finances.

Without the right help, financial planning for yourself and your employees can quickly become neglected and sometimes completely overlooked. Effective planning is key, especially as your business grows and finances start to become increasingly complex. We can help you put the right plans in place, to build your financial security over the longer term.

Running a business can be stressful, but our range of corporate services help to provide you, your company, and your employees with financial peace of mind.

The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.

How we work

Is your business protected from the unexpected?

The pandemic has made employers reconsider topics that they would never have had to confront before. A serious illness or death of a key employee could have disastrous consequences for a business. Having regularly reviewed and updated plans in place as your business grows and changes could ease these problems. 

Protecting your business can encompass many areas and improving the financial well-being of your employees is a key pillar. Surviving and thriving in today’s fast-paced and demanding world often means that employees have little time to look out for their financial futures. Personal financial uncertainty can be a major source of stress, which could adversely impact on their well-being and focus at work. As part of our UK-wide Workplace Financial Education Programme, we provide corporate services to collaborate with organisations, like yours, to support the financial well-being of your biggest asset – your people.

    this valuation. Instant notifications when a new document is available to view.

    For every client opting for paperless correspondence, St. James’s Place will donate £5,to the St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation.

    The value of an investment with St. James’s Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.

    The favourable tax treatment of ISAs may not be maintained in the future and is subject to changes in legislation.

    Investing in their future:

    Less well-known is that children can also have a pension fund as soon as they are born – and setting one up can bring significant tax advantages. Even if your child is a non-taxpayer, they will still get basic-rate tax relief on contributions. That means a maximum of £2,880 a year is automatically grossed up to take account of tax at 25%, giving an annual investment of £3,600

    What we offer

    Employee Benefits

    A clearly communicated benefits and remuneration strategy can help to recruit and retain high calibre employees. One of our advisers will spend time with you to learn about your business, before creating a cost-effective corporate services strategy to help everything run smoothly. 

    Employer Benefits

    Whether you’re setting up employer benefits for your staff or require assistance understanding the employee benefits you’ve been given by an employer, an adviser will offer tailored advice. Before making a recommendation, we spend time fully understanding your circumstances to determine a cost-effective strategy that can fit with your plans.

    Auto-Enrolment (Pensions)

    It is your responsibility as the corporate director or business owner to understand the pension provisions you need to make for your staff. We can help make everything clearer for you by structuring your pension offering and educating your staff on company benefits. 

    Corporate Planning

    Planning for the unexpected is often overlooked but could help secure a company’s future by protecting capital, livelihood and family. Whether preparing in the event of a key employee falling ill or ensuring your shareholders have plans in place for beneficiaries who are not interested in taking the company forward, an adviser can help you shape the future, safeguarding security and prosperity no matter what comes your way. 

    Company Benefits

    Company benefit schemes are a growing trend, with many companies offering dental cover, company cars or various other perks. Access to a financial adviser is still low in the UK as only one in fourteen people (7%) has received paid-for financial advice within the last two years*. Providing your employees with a comprehensive handbook and access to financial advice can relieve stress and improve financial education.

    Corporate Services and Investing

    Corporate investing is a positive way to put your business’s surplus cash to good use. Instead of holding company money in the bank, you can put some of it into investments, to generate additional revenue. This gives your excess cash a chance to grow, rather than stay in a savings account.

    The value of an investment with St. James’s Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested. An investment in equities does not provide the security of capital associated with a deposit account with a bank or building society.
