The benefits of a SSAS - take control of your pension
Please see 'SSAS or SIPP - a comparison' for more information.
You can contribute to your SSAS in cash (and via In-Specie Contributions) and also sell assets from your business to your SSAS, effectively withdrawing up to 100% of fund as cash.
In addition to building a tax-efficient retirement fund for you, your SSAS also ring-fences your assets against potential business creditors.
Use your SSAS as a vehicle to lend money, borrow money (to purchase commercial property) and protect your assets from creditors, all in a tax-efficient manner.
Use your SSAS for its primary purpose, to pay you a pension! Our SSAS allows full flexibility under the rule changes introduced in April 2015. We also have a calculator that will let you know how much pension you can draw under Capped Drawdown for those who crystilised their benefits prior to April 6th 2015.
A huge variety of investments are allowable in a SSAS, thus benefiting both your business and your retirement.
