Understanding the benefits of QROPS

A Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme is an overseas pension scheme that has met the requirements of the HMRC, which can receive the transfer of UK Pension Benefits without penalties for unauthorised payments. QROPS were introduced in April 2006 in order to simplify pensions and allow UK Pension Holders to access their funds in their country of residence, and pay local taxes.

A QROPS will broadly mirror the way a UK Pension Scheme works, meaning you should receive a lump sum and pension when you retire.
