QROPS Thailand. British expats living in Thailand or wishing to retire in Thailand can now transfer their pension into a QROPS to avoid paying taxes legally in the UK. British expatriates living or working in Thailand can take advantage of their offshore status and transfer their UK pension offshore to somewhere secure like New Zealand and will no longer have to pay UK taxes on their pension as long as they stay offshore. A British expat would live in Thailand, hold his pension in NZ or Gibraltar to avoid UK taxes, whilst living in Thailand. When it is time to draw a pension income, your pension is paid into your Thai account or a an offshore account.
