A SSAS, or ‘Small Self-Administered Scheme’, is a pension scheme available to limited companies or partnerships with 11 directors or less, and it’s tailored specifically to the needs of small businesses.


Because of a SSAS’s number of unique benefits for business owners, we strongly believe that it is the best pension scheme in the UK for small businesses – even better than a SIPP, which the majority of advisers currently recommend.


A SSAS can be set up to provide extraordinary retirement benefits for business owners, thanks to its flexibility, the tax relief available on contributions and the fact it can be used to help grow a business before retirement too – it also provides the opportunity to invest more wisely too.


We believe that a SSAS is the top choice when it comes to business owners like your clients.


The sheer number of features that benefit business owners within a SSAS means that the pension scheme can provide advantages to the majority of sme’s


A SSAS gives flexibility and security, with the most investment options available to any pension scheme.


It also has a unique loan back facility which can vastly improve cashflow in your clients’ business if they need it, and can also act as an effective planning tool to reduce corporation tax.


Making sure their family’s future is safe is vital for all business owners, and having a SSAS helps make sure of this – it is a Trust based arrangement, and, as with any other pension, can be accessed from age 55.


Whether its funding for their business, enabling them to get through times of financial difficulty, or providing a tool for tax, inheritance and succession planning, a SSAS pension scheme can help if you know how to use it.


Why have your clients started a business in the first place? Most likely it’s to find financial security, to build a comfortable and happy retirement, and leave something behind for their family. With a SSAS this is all possible – this is a scheme that lets your clients make the most of their investments whilst -successfully growing their business at the same time.
