Qualifying term assurance question

Does pure protection policy have qualifying status and income tax chargable?

Didn't find your answer?


There is requirement for qualifying life policy to have annual premium of no more than £3600. For non-qualifying policy the payout is subject to income tax. Does this apply to pure protection insurance like vanilla term assurance?

For example, if a customer purchase a life + critical illness policy with annual premium over £3600, will the beneficiary have to pay income tax on the potential benefit?
