Looking for specialist pensions

If you’re a business owner, you may be looking for more flexibility with your pension, or wondering if you can utilise it for support in other areas.

We’re experts in helping people get more from their pensions to drive their business forward.

SIPP or SSAS? We’ve got you covered

There’s a common misconception that your pension is solely to provide for your retirement, and it has no short or medium-term benefit to you and your business. But some pensions can provide additional advantages, particularly if you’re looking to take the next step and expand your premises.

We help business owners explore their pension options and devise a strategy that enables them to pursue their goals. It might be building up the necessary funds to purchase commercial premises, both with and without borrowing. It could be simply ensuring you benefit from all the relevant tax planning opportunities, so you can withdraw profits in the most efficient way.

With specialist pension advice, you can be confident that smart financial management always stays at the centre of your plans, and that your business journey can progress in a way that works for you.

  • Understand what’s right for you

    Whether it’s a self-invested personal pension (SIPP) or a small self-administered scheme (SSAS), we’ll explain the pros and cons of your options so you can make an informed decision.

  • Support with business expansion

    Looking to purchase a business property? We’ll work with you to ensure your pension can be used to fund your new premises.

  • Tax planning

    We’ll make sure you’re making the most of any applicable tax reliefs and exemptions, so you can get the most out of your scheme.
