I’ve heard I can set up personal protection policies through my company. Is this correct?
Yes you can. You can use a specially designed product called a Relevant Life Policy. This is personal life cover that is an allowable business expense. We can help you with this.
I’ve heard about a pension called a SSAS. Would I benefit from one of these?
A Small Self Administered Scheme (SSAS) is a special type of company pension. There can be many advantages to using this type of scheme depending on what you are trying to achieve. For example, it can be a great way of financing the purchase of a commercial property. This could be the property your business already owns, a property you want your business to use or just an investment.
