    Trouble with this though is you need to pay the tax to get it out the Ltd - which unless you can get by on less than the 40% threshold will cost... which is a reason to look at investing from the company no?

    If you make company funded SIPP contributions you tell HL (or whoever) of that fact and they then do not make a tax claim. It's very tax efficient way to get the money out of the company.

    Agreed - for getting money out of the company it is a good option if that is first priority but if it's personal contributions it's not as clear.
    Personally I am doing both because I can see 55 from here but if I was 32, I might want a bit more control.

    The closer you are to 55 (I'm 56) the more attractive it becomes as you can take the 25% tax free lump sum from age 55 onwards. I'm maxing out my SIPP contributions.

    So for contributions from my own limited company it's just a very tax efficient way of taking money out of the company - basically I don't pay any tax when taking that money out (as opposed to divi tax etc. if I was doing contributions from a personal source)?

    Yes, SIPP contributions are an allowable expense for your co ltd. As a bonus, it "IR35 proofs" that portion of your turnover too.
