HMRC has issued a second Countdown Bulletin on the abolition of DC contracting-out from 6 April 2012. It includes advice to notify HMRC of any transfers and terminations which take place prior to 6 April 2012, to prevent Minimum Contributions and Age Related Rebates being made to/from the incorrect scheme.

And, making it all official, regulations have now been laid which will activate the relevant sections of the 2007 and 2008 Pensions Acts abolishing protected rights on 6 April 2012.
