Buying a commercial property through your pension is a popular type of investment, particularly for business owners who have their own premises.
To fund the property purchase, the business can contribute to a pension. Any contributions will be treated as allowance expenses, reducing your corporation tax liability.
Pensions & Property
By holding a commercial property in your pension, you will benefit from:
…✓ Tax-free growth. This means that when you come to sell the property, there’s no capital gains tax to pay (rather than the 18% or 28% tax paid if not held in a pension).
…✓ Tax-free income. Any rental payments paid by the business will reduce its corporation tax liability and no tax would be paid on the income by the pension.

…1. Whether your pension can invest in commercial property
