New UK commercial property rules announced on Wednesday - making it easier to convert commercial properties into residential housing - could hit investors in commercial property using SIPPs and SSAS.

The Financial Ombudsman Service has reported a drop in the 'complaint upheld' rate for SIPPs from 61% in 2018/19 to 52% in 2019/20. 

As the UK moves into the 7th week of lockdown and the world has changed beyond all recognition, it has also been a time of reflection.

The FCA has reduced a £93,800 fine imposed on pension adviser Lloyd Pope, a former director of now dissolved firm TailorMade Independent Ltd, by approximately £70,000.

It is hard to believe that the first SIPP was sold over 30 years ago.

It is quite hard to believe that we have just welcomed in the start of a new decade as 2020 begins.

As you will no doubt be aware, we have recently had the budget date announced as 11 March. This is somewhat later than anticipated, not least because the Conservatives pledged a post Brexit Budget in February as part of their election campaign.

Forgetting the taper may be wishful thinking for those of us in the pensions world but most of the general public (NHS aside) may be blissfully unaware. 

Xafinity SIPP/SSAS has reached the milestone of having 2,000 commercial properties under administration for our clients.
The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) has received 733 claims against Berkeley Burke Sipp Administration Limited (BBSAL).
