ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses the impact of budget to the performance of group self invested personal pensions (SIPPS), a pension scheme, in Great Britain. He analyzes that the implementation of the budget has affected the choice of the small medium enterprises (SME) because they doubt its benefit. However, he cites that group SIPPS is advantageous because this allows employers to meet their ethical obligation in providing automatic access to Sharia funds.
