What is a SSAS
A small self administered scheme (SSAS) is an occupational pension scheme, established by a business which appoints the trustees to hold the assets of the scheme for the bene t of the scheme members.

Tax Registration: We will undertake an identity and money laundering check and subject to that clearance plus receipt of the set up documents your pension scheme will be tax registered with HMRC, the Pensions Regulator (if appropriate) and a bank account opened. Paying into it: You can pay money from your business, personally or a third party can pay into your SSAS. You will get tax relief on those payments, the amount of relief will vary but we can work this out for you. Subject to nancial advice you can transfer money from most other pensions to your SSAS. Opening a bank account: You can open a bank account with whoever you like, but we have a special arrangement with Investec Bank which is quick and easy. Yes, the signatory can be solely you.

We can help you structure this most tax e ciently. Taking your money out: You can have a quarter of the fund tax free, the rest you can take as an income from the scheme. We will work this out for you. You will have a lifetime allowance on your overall pension fund, but we will monitor to make sure that this is not exceeded.

Why Switch
Most people's personal reasons for choosing a SSAS consisted of... A fund for the future: A SSAS allows you and those your business admits to the pension scheme a pension fund for the future. Complete Control: A SSAS allows you the trustees, complete control over the pension scheme, from investing money to paying out the bene ts on retirement. Tax free growth: A SSAS is completely free from capital gains tax, this means that when you sell investments you will not be liable to tax on the gain. Tax free investment returns: Investment income is tax free, this means the income from dividends (excluding the tax credit) is not subject to income tax. Tax relief on money paid in: If you or another person pays money into the SSAS, those payments will qualify for tax relief. The amount of tax relief will depend on your income from employment. Tax free lump sum: A quarter of accumulated fund is free of income tax, up to a personal lifetime allowance. This lump sum can be paid from age 55 and you do not need to retire to take the tax free lump sum Tax e cient to your bene ciaries: If you die before taking the bene ts, the accumulated fund will be paid tax free to your chosen bene ciaries. There is a lifetime limit on the amount payable and the rule changes after on death age 77 or when you take the money, if earlier. Under such rules tax will be payable.

Case Studies
The service that I received from Anthony James Hall was excellent, I knew I could call them at any time and there would always be someone there willing to speak to me. Not only this, the SSAS that I have with Pension Practitioners has countless bene ts that I did not previously have, such as tax bene ts and more control. Barbara S.

When retiring from my limited company I wanted to incorporate the tax bene ts that I had been used too, into my pension. Working with Anthony James Hall allowed me to do this. As an owner of a limited company, I have always paid myself through dividends because of the tax bene ts. Anthony James Hall has allowed me to continue to do this throughout my years of retirement. - Derek B.

Now that I am in control of my pension and was able to release funds into my business. I am certain that I will be able to vastly outperform the provider of my previous pension, who in the past has lost me money. John P.
