Invest in rebuildingsociety Through a P2P Pension
While eyes have been focused on the upcoming P2P ISAs (tax-free lending), individuals lending through peer-to-peer have been able to lend tax-free in pensions for six months already.
The latest peer-to-peer lending company to allow lenders to lend through a pension is rebuildingsociety.
The higher-risk, higher-potential return business-lending platform is now another P2P lending company that has partnered with SIPPclub.
Through SIPPclub, high-net worth lenders or those classed as “sophisticated” investors are allowed to lend through the EvolutionSIPP. That's a pension product that lets you personally select a greater range of investments than normal.
All investments made through a SIPP are free of tax. Since interest earned in peer-to-peer lending is usually taxed at your own income tax rate, this can bring big advantages.
The other peer-to-peer lending websites that you can lend in through the EvolutionSIPP are Assetz Capital, Capital Stackers, Proplend and ThinCats.
Nick Moules, marketing & communications manager at rebuildingsociety.com, said: “When ISA lending become possible in the future, it's likely there will still be greater scope for lending pension money on peer-to-peer platforms, for pension contribution limits are much higher.”
