a SSAS is a ‘small self-administered scheme’. it is a registered pension scheme that is set up by an employer and whose members are normally directors or owners of that business. it has significant flexibility when it comes to investing

the basics

You can make contributions to the SSAS and get tax relief.
For example, if you’re a 20% tax payer, and you pay in £800, the Government will add £200.

Your company can pay in contributions and get corporation tax relief.
That’s tax relief at 19% on your profits.

You can transfer other pensions into the SSAS and use that money to invest in a more ‘hands-on’ way.
You’ll be far more in control.

All your investments grow tax free.
So, there’s no capital gains tax to be paid on any investments if they grow and you then sell them.

There’s no income tax to pay on any of the investments.
So, rent and loan payments (see below) will be paid without any deductions.

The fund is there for your family when you die.
If you die before age 75, they can inherit the entire fund tax free. If you’re older, then they still inherit the fund, but will usually keep it in place and take a regular income from it.

so what about the small print…

There’s always small print… and a SSAS is like everything else. You need to understand what it is, what it does, and how you can use it.

Used properly, it is an incredibly powerful tool for pension and financial planning. There are, however, rules and regulations that tell you what you can and can’t do and you need to be familiar with these.

A SSAS is a Trust and comes with a set of Rules that help to govern how it will operate. These rules work in conjunction with

ship – you’ll act as a Trustee of your own pension scheme. How do you develop that knowledge?
