SIPPS Property Investments
One of the major investment areas open to SIPPS is property. Essentially, SIPP schemes can own retail or commercial property which can be let to one’s own company. This could be of significant benefit compared with letting from a third party as effectively one is channelling rental income into one’s own pension fund. Loans to the fund to facilitate such purchases are available.
The basic change is that incoming rent from property held in a SIPP fund accumulates tax free, and capital gains tax on profits from UK property sales will not apply (provided they are kep in the SIPP fund). This is clearly a major change.
