Self Invested Personal Pension

SIPPs are one of the most tax-efficient ways of investing for retirement. If you want a flexible pension that puts you in control, a SIPP could be right for you. Our SIPP is provided by AJ Bell, one of the leading pension providers in the UK.

When you open a SIPP you get all the tax benefits of a personal pension and you can choose from a wide range of investments. If you've built up multiple pension pots, you can also consolidate them all into an IWeb SIPP, making it much easier to manage your investments.

Plus, with an IWeb SIPP

  • There is no account opening charge.
  • SIPP administration charges of £22.50 per quarter (values less than or equal to £50,000) and £45.00 per quarter (values more than £50,000). Other charges may apply.
  • You can trade on UK and international markets for £5 dealing commission per trade.
  • Your employer can make contributions directly into your SIPP.

Please note: If you open an IWeb Stocks and Shares ISA and/or an IWeb Share Dealing Account alongside your SIPP, the usual account opening charges will still apply for those accounts.

Did you know?

You can hold a Government or company pension, or even another SIPP, running alongside your IWeb SIPP.

What are the tax benefits of a SIPP?

  • Receive up to 45% tax relief*, depending on your circumstances.
  • Pay no Capital Gains Tax on pension investments.
  • Take 25% of your pension fund as a tax-free lump sum from the age of 55.

UK tax laws may change and tax treatment depends on individual personal circumstances.

If you are resident in Scotland for tax purposes the tax relief you will be entitled to will be at the Scottish Rate of income tax, which may differ from the rest of the UK.

Things to consider

  • The value of investments can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than the amount invested.
  • The tax-efficiency of a SIPP depends on your individual circumstances and tax rules may change.
  • SIPPs are a pension product and you will not be able to withdraw your money until you reach the age of 55.
  • We don't provide advice so if you are in any doubt about buying and selling shares or making your own investment decisions we recommend you seek advice from a suitably qualified Financial Adviser.
