There are several different types of overseas pension schemes available - including QROPS (or ROPS), QNUPS or a SIPP.
If you have a UK pension and want to take full advantage of its potential a SIPP or QROPS (or Recognised Overseas Pensions Scheme), may be the best option for you.
HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) allows UK pensions to be transferred into a number of officially approved overseas schemes. It’s mainly used by expatriates, as it can have tax benefits and allows them to take complete control of their retirement money.
It’s easy to get a no obligation transfer valuation so you can get a view of how much your pension is worth and how it might benefit you by transferring to a recognised scheme.
