Why Choose A SSAS?

Read on to find out how the many features of SSAS pensions will add value to some of your clients. 

What is a SSAS?

A small, self-administered pension scheme (SSAS) is a type of pension, usually a defined contribution workplace pension, which can give extra investment flexibility.

The pension is independently managed by the company that set it up, allowing the pension trustees to choose how the fund is invested. It can even be invested in the fund’s own company.

Importantly, a SSAS is a trust, as well as an occupational pension scheme. This unique structure also provides numerous oportunities to business owners, their families and their limited company.

Benefits of SSAS

A SSAS carries all the standard benefits of a traditional pension scheme, including the tax-free lump sum on retirement, no capital gains tax on the disposal of investments and no income tax on any permitted investments.

But there’s more with a SSAS:

Greater flexibility

Trustees can choose where the money is invested, including purchasing shares in the sponsoring company, or buying and leasing back company property.

Fund and take loans

The SSAS can also make loans to the company, or to unconnected companies, as well as borrow money for further investments.

Tax relief

There are several ways a SSAS can provide various tax relief and benefits to the business owners and their limited company.

Trust assets

Any fund assets can be held in trust and passed on to family members on death, offering significant estate planning and inheritance tax benefits.
