Welcome to Syntax Professional Services


Syntax Professional Services is one of the few genuinely independent firms providing a full pension trustee and administration service specifically to the SME market, focusing on owner managed and entrepreneurial businesses with pension funds with an aggregate value of over £100,000, a market in which we have established a genuine niche.
Our sole purpose is to deliver flexible and comprehensive services to our clients, something that the larger SSAS trustees and SIPP providers struggle to provide. We act only for clients who have been fully advised by their professional financial advisers to whom we offer a bespoke and hands-on service from inception and throughout the lifetime of their SSAS, providing full professional and practical advice and support.
Our process involves working with your professional financial advisers to gain a thorough understanding of your business and your objectives.
Through this understanding we will use our discretion as trustees to ensure that the SSAS runs smoothly and effectively, particularly should you be considering any of the range of suitable investments.
Based in the South East, we operate right across the UK.

What are Trusts?

A trust is a legal relationship created (in lifetime, or on death) by a settlor, the person making the trust, who wishes to place certain assets under the control of a trustee for the benefit of a beneficiary, the person who will benefit from the assets or income form them, or for a particular reason.

What is an SSAS?

A Small Self-Administered Scheme (known as an SSAS) is a flexible occupational pension scheme. An SSAs is normally set up by the directors or partners of an owner managed or family business. The SSAS can be set up to provide retirement benefits for both the business owners and their families.


Pension Scheme Administration

A pension scheme doesn’t just need trustees, it also needs to be administered in accordance with various sets of regulations including HMRC and data protection. We offer both the services of a professional trustee and a pension administrator so that the trusteeship and “housekeeping” are kept under one roof. Member trustees are relieved of the complex burdens of pension scheme administration.
