Every year hundreds of thousands of individuals of multiple nationalities leave the UK, with the general expectation of not returning. These are either Britons who have spent most of their working lives in the UK, or others who have worked for a period in the UK. In both instances, many of these individuals have contributed to a UK Pension scheme. Some have contributed for 2 years and others 25 years, the result of which many of these individuals qualify for a QROPS UK Pension Transfer.
As individuals are not returning to the UK the benefits that can be gained by considering a QROPS Pension Transfer are numerous.
Wherever you are moving to in the world, it is often best advice to keep your UK Pension in a secure offshore jurisdiction, and not necessarily transfer it to the jurisdiction where you are moving to.
Whatever you choose, it is important that you speak to an accredited adviser who understands offshore QROPS jurisdictions as well as your country’s legislation. Thus, it’s best to speak to an adviser in the specific country/city where you will be based.
