Small Self-Administered Scheme
A SSAS is a Small Self-Administered Scheme known as an occupational pension and can only be established by a limited company. The SSAS is typically set up for the benefit of a company’s Directors or its senior employees.
Like the SIPP a SSAS is favoured because of the flexibility it provides both in terms of Control and investment flexibility. As well as being able to invest in wide range of assets such as direct commercial properties the SSAS can also make a loanback to the Limited company.
