What's in the pension planning guides?

This guide contains helpful information and tips about how to legally and properly avoid the LTA taxes using HMRC protection and careful Benefit Crystalisation planning.

Pension transfer advice is highly sought after. Pension transfer specialists are a rare breed, and finding one to work with international clients can be tricky! Read our guide to understand whether a pension transfer could be right for you, before we connect you to a regulated adviser.

This guide is for anyone who either already has a QROPS in their portfolio, or is considering one. Our guide includes all the information you need to understand your overseas pension. QROPS can be excellent planning tools, but are often misused. Find out if a QROPS fits your planning and what changes you can make if it doesn’t.

Returning to the UK? Before you leave it’s important to review your financial assets. Overseas investments sit under a different regulatory and tax environment than the UK. Some require adjustments to ensure they report correctly for UK tax. Without preparing investments correctly, you could be stung with a big tax bill.
