In August 2014 the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) added physical gold bullion to its list of standard assets. This means that physical gold can now be included within a pension through a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) or Small Self-Administered Scheme (SSAS).
A Self-Invested Personal Pension is a product that allows you to decide
your own investment strategy. While a Small Self-Administered Scheme is an
occupational pension, usually set-up by company directors for a small
number of employees.
If you are a UK citizen looking to enhance your SIPP or SSAS, you may be able to benefit from up to 45% tax relief on your purchase of gold if you buy them through your pension scheme.
Unlike some other forms of investment, your pension can also increase, free of Capital Gains Tax.
Holding gold bullion in your Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) or Small
Self-Administered Scheme (SSAS) may help you balance your investment
portfolio and maximise your return.
*Note; check if your current SIPP pension scheme is able to include gold. If not, it may be possible to open a second SIPP that allows a gold holding. For SSAS holders please refer to your Pension Scheme Administrator for more information.
HOW DO I HOLD GOLD IN MY PENSION
You must have either a SIPP or SSAS to hold gold in a pension. If you’re unsure what type of pension you have and whether you qualify, please give us a call to discuss your situation in more detail.
Please note however, we don’t provide SIPPs or SSASs directly. You will be
required to go through a pension provider to access this service.
Using our Gold Pension account is simple, once set up, both private individuals and pension scheme providers can access the account online to view and manage the gold held within pension schemes.
All gold is automatically stored in allocated vault and using our 'Buy Back' Facility, account holders can sell part or all of their gold holding at any time should the customer wish for their funds to be returned to their pension fund.
So, for private individuals or small private scheme holders, a Hallmark Investments Gold Pension account provides flexibility and liquidity, offering the ability to buy and sell physical gold bullion at competitive premiums determined by live gold prices.
WHAT GOLD BULLION IS ELIGIBLE?
For gold bullion to be eligible to be held in a pension scheme it must be in a form acceptable to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), currently defined as bar or wafer with purity of no less than 99.5% which is professionally stored.
All of our bars exceed the requirements as each serialised bar is 999.9 fine gold.
