by Abbie Knight | 29/03/2019 | Events

We are pleased to announce our upcoming pensions workshops, which we are co-hosting with the team at Tilney. Read on for the full details and contact Nicky Snow if you would like to reserve a place

How can a DB SSAS work for you?

We will highlight how you can quickly catch-up on lost years of pension funding using the defined benefit funding principles and show how a DB SSAS can also be used to enable intergenerational passing of assets and estate planning strategies which will optimise fund value and IHT efficiency.

Planning to avoid problems with SSASs

An interactive case study looking at the most common causes of SSAS disputes, the problems arising when a dispute occurs and how value can be added by taking simple steps at inception of the SSAS and putting in place mechanisms to reduce the risk of these issues arising and to allow resolution of disputes.
