What is a SSAS?

SSAS — also known as a Small Self Administered Scheme (SSAS) — is a company pension scheme, the members of which are usually directors and key employees of the sponsoring employer.

Whilst subject to the same rules relating to contributions and benefits as a normal company pension scheme, SSAS’ schemes have considerably more flexibility and control over the investment policies and the scheme’s underlying assets.

Other considerations are that only one scheme is permitted per employer, normally the scheme should have less than 12 members and there can be limits on the amount of investment.
