Expatriate pensions and investments—make the most of your money
We want to help you take full advantage of the expat pensions and investments opportunities available to you, particularly as many people move abroad for financial reasons in the first place, and with the right choice of offshore investments you could soon see your money grow. Managing your wealth successfully all comes down to the offshore investments you choose to make and how you diversify your portfolio, and it’s important to think about your offshore tax liability as well. There are ways you can reduce the amount of tax you pay and making savvy offshore investments can be a great way to achieve that, and if you’re approaching later life you’ll need to look into expatriate pensions as well. There are plenty of different expat pensions and investment opportunities available but one that’s growing in popularity is the QROPS pension, and with a great range of benefits it isn’t hard to see why.
QROPS pension—the basics
The QROPS pension option (otherwise known as the Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme) allows non-UK residents to transfer their UK pension offshore, tax free. It’s recognised by the HMRC and enables those who’ve moved abroad to keep their private/corporate pension by transferring it to another provider, ensuring they don’t lose out on the money built up. A QROPS pension offers additional flexibility and substantial tax savings, and unlike UK pensions all offshore pension schemes are viewed as assets which can then be passed onto heirs. Although it still requires you to report to the HMRC for the first 5 years, pensions of this kind can be the perfect decision for people who are relocating for the long-term, with the QROPS pension being the ideal choice.
