What is a SIPP?
A Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) is a bespoke pension arrangement designed for individuals looking to control their pension fund investments.
SIPPs offer significant benefits in pension and tax planning, allowing considerable flexibility. Clients can contribute up to the annual allowance in any one tax year, and take advantage of any unused relief by way of carry forward.
(Note: If a client is in receipt of the new flexi-access income streams, the Money Purchase Annual Allowance will apply).
