Why choose a SIPP?


There have been recent developments surrounding in specie contributions, specifically on whether HMRC are prepared to grant tax relief on them. Until such time that HMRC’s position is clarified we have suspended our ability to accept new in specie contributions.

What’s a SIPP?

A SIPP (Self Invested Personal Pension) is a type of personal pension scheme that allows you to save for retirement in a tax efficient and flexible way.  


A SIPP can give you the choice of a huge range of investments, including commercial property, although many SIPPs provide less investment scope.  With a SIPP, you decide how you want to invest your pension savings, with your financial adviser’s support. 


Why save in a SIPP?

SIPPs are used by all sorts of people, including those who are employed, self employed or young savers.  Some of the main benefits of a SIPP include:

  • Tax efficiency

    • Tax relief on contributions

    • No income tax on investments

    • No capital gains tax on investments

    • Tax free lump sum at retirement

  • Income from when you’re 55 years old (lump sum or regular)

  • Wide range of possible investments

  • Where advice is appropriate, consolidate your pension savings.

However, you can’t access your pension fund before age 55 and any income you take from the SIPP will be taxed as income.  You (or your financial adviser) also need to actively manage your investments to ensure you make the most of your money.
