SSAS under pension simplification

SSAS has a number of unique features thanks to pension simplification, some of the main ones include:

  • The assets are held in the names of the member trustees; the statutory requirement to have a pensioneer trustee as signatory no longer applies. This is an important feature where a client wants total control over their pension affairs
  • A SSAS can transact with the member on arms length terms in a variety of tax efficient ways
  • Contributions do not need to be allocated at outset, this gives SSAS an edge on IHT, corporation and personal tax planning
  • Loans are permissible, there is considerable flexibility on the form that the security should take
  • A SSAS can act as guarantor in a variety of forms, this can be an excellent business planning tool
  • In specie contributions and third party payments are very flexible via a SSAS
  • Investment in unquoted shares is allowed for SSAS, most SIPP operators no longer permit unquoted shares
  • Non earmarking of assets gives the member trustees considerable flexibility on tax planning
  • There is no longer a requirement for an actuarial valuation report or a pensioneer trustee. SSAS are now simpler to operate



SSAS as a revenue source for advisors

The revenue source for advisors via a SSAS extends beyond the investment of initial contributions and transfer values, Pension Practitioner .Com works with advisors on identifying those sources. Unlike SIPPS, SSAS allows family members and other non employees to join a common trust scheme. The unique trust structure of the Pension Practitioner .Com SSAS allows non-earmarked assets to be passed down to future family generations within the regulatory requirements of HMRC tax efficiently.

Prolonging the longevity of the scheme by allowing non earmarked assets to be transferred to new members is a valuable source of new business. Those new members will have different investment needs to the current membership, those client needs invariably extend beyond pension planning.
