We are recognised experts in SSAS administration and employ a team of specialists with in-depth knowledge of HMRC's rules, taxation and scheme governing principles.

These services are suitable for existing SSASs, including scheme takeovers with existing property portfolios.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is a scheme practitioner?

Every pension scheme registered in the UK must have a scheme administrator. The administrator is accountable to HMRC for complying with scheme rules and reporting requirements. Anyone acting on behalf of a scheme administrator is a scheme practitioner.

Why use SSAS practitioner services?

Without the involvement of a professional SSAS scheme administrator or practitioner, you risk running into issues and potentially incuring fines as a result. By tapping into our technical expertise you can rest assured your scheme will be run correctly and compliantly.

If you appoint us as practitioner we can correspond with HMRC and prepare scheme documentation or provide actuarial, administration, pension payroll and reporting services. Alteratively, we can simply offer guidance on a technical issue or area of concern.
