Here at WealthBuilders we’ve spent many years championing SSAS, a unique and flexible pension exclusively for business owners and entrepreneurs.
The big win? – it gives you complete control of you financial future and genuine financial freedom for you, your business and your family.
Education is at the core of everything we do, and we’re the SSAS experts – we’ve trained and empowered many hundreds of people and our programmes will boost your financial future, really teaching you how to get the most from your pensions with a SSAS.
“WealthBuilding is an easily learned science because there are only seven assets that contribute to the process.”
What is SSAS?
SSAS stands for Small Self Administered Scheme – it’s a type of company pension for small and medium sized businesses.
The name is a bit dull, but a SSAS is far from boring:
- it puts you in control of your own pension
- it allows you to decide how and where you invest
- it lets you choose who helps you manage and run your SSAS
- and most importantly, gives you access to huge returns driven by your skills, connections and knowledge
No jargon – just straight talking.
Not enough? – we know that some people are just all about detail, or even if you’re not you might have some other questions, and so here’s our SSAS FAQ download that answers all of the most common questions about SSAS.
It’s simple really – here are 6 fantastic SSAS ‘wins’:
The ability to lend 50% of your total SSAS to your business or across various businesses for any genuine business reason from just 1% + base
Complete control of your investment decisions – you can Bridge, Borrow, Buy and Bank (what we call the 4 B’s)
Contribute large sums from profit each year and get full tax relief for your business (and then have the ability to borrow 50% of that sum back immediately)
Use your SSAS to buy and rent back commercial premises for your business, rent to others, or even buy and develop property and land
Consolidate family or fellow business partners’ pensions to give a much bigger investment pot and get access to a much wider range of investment opportunities
And at the end of all of this, pass it on to your loved ones who can carry this on

Our SSAS Member Trustee programmes are unique as it puts you in the driving seat of your own SSAS – in short, it gives you complete control of your own strategy and pension, forever.
We just don’t think that it’s right to give control to somebody else that you have no relationship with and who doesn’t share your goals!
Of course, with all this possibility comes responsibility and the need for great due diligence to ensure you have the appropriate scheme and can operate it safely with the right guidance – our comprehensive programme will give you that.
We’ve helped many hundreds of business owners create pension freedom, and we’ll work with you to:
- teach you all you need to know to get started
- create an HMRC-friendly business plan
- get you prepped and ready for HMRC for a successful application and then transferring in existing pensions
- then help you create the right plan for you and your business
The 7 Steps SSAS Journey
You will be guided throughout the entire process and our SSAS experts know SSAS inside and out. It follows our core investment principles.
At the centre of everything we do is education – it’s one of our core principles.

Can I Have a SSAS?
We’ve created a simple checklist – if you can tick off these points then we can help you.
To take the next step on your SSAS journey now, you’ll need to:
- have at least one active UK business (that means not ‘dormant)
- be a Director (an official Officer on Companies House) of that business or have the ability to be added as one
- have a minimum of £25,000 from existing pensions, new contributions or both
- have some experience or training in at least one of the areas that you’d like your SSAS to invest in or be able to call on the expertise of someone else
You can’t use pensions that are:
- live’ or ‘active’ final salary pensions – in other words they are part of a current employment
- with Fire, NHS or Police
- certain Civil Service and Teachers Pension schemes are also NOT able to be transferred so you would need to check with your current scheme to see if it is possible to transfer your benefits
Four big ticks? Fantastic – get in touch and one of our SSAS experts can discuss how we can guide you through the next bit step in financial freedom.
If you can’t tick all of these, or only have pension schemes from the list above then you’re not quite ready – but we can still help you take action to get ready for the future, including being part of our “SSAS Simulator”.
