Your choice of an annual or monthly contribution model gives you the ultimate flexibility. You have the option to cancel or increase your cover at anytime because we offer cover that adapts to your business needs.
Each member is required to submit sufficient information for us to make an informed risk assessment of your business. MPI must operate on a bona fide commercial basis. This means we cannot accept members’ contributions that are far in excess of what is reasonable for the size and type of business. We also cannot accept contributions that are far in excess of what is required to fund the likely risks the member business may present to MPI.
For example, a member may wish to pay a contribution of £2m for a particular year. If the risk assessment shows that only £1.5m can be justified, MPI cannot accept a larger contribution.
Having been advised of the maximum acceptable contribution, a member may choose to pay less: there is no requirement to pay the maximum. The member would then quite legitimately claim a deduction for that contribution against their current year profits, on the basis of the ‘wholly and exclusively’ test.
