If you have a UK pension and currently live in Belgium, or intend living in Belgium, and you remain a non-resident of the UK for five years or more, you should consider a QROPS transfer.
Currently there are a number of QROPS funds in Belgium, however you would do well to consider moving your UK pension funds to a QROPS in a neutral jurisdiction such as Guernsey or the Isle of Man, giving you greater long-term flexibility.
If you live in Belgium or consider living in Belgium for 5+ years, you can transfer your UK Pension into an HMRC approved scheme in an offshore, tax friendly jurisdiction, such as the Channel Islands. The Benefits Include:
- Tax Efficiency (often 50%+ Tax Saving)
- Wide choice of investment options
- 100% to Nominated Beneficiaries.
