Small Self-Administered Schemes (SSAS)
A Small Self-Administered Scheme (SSAS) is a pension trust set up by a limited company or a partnership. SSASs are primarily set up for the benefit of the owner directors and senior employees by private and family run limited companies.
The members are also the trustees of the trust meaning they have control and flexibility over the assets within the scheme and the investment choices in a tax efficient environment.
SSASs can offer other benefits as well as the usual tax exemptions available with all other registered pension schemes.
