Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme

QROP's Current Alerts and Other News...............


What is QROP's?

A Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme, or QROPS, is an overseas pension scheme that meets certain requirements set by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). A QROPS can receive the transfer of UK Pension Benefits without incurring an unauthorised payment and scheme sanction charge. The QROPS program was launched on 6 April 2006 as a part of new legislation with the objective of simplifying pensions.

Typically this occurs when a UK resident leaves the UK to emigrate permanently (or to retire abroad) having built up a pension fund within a scheme approved by HMRC or when a person born abroad who has built up benefits in a HMRC approved UK Pension Scheme decides to return to their home country with an expectation of retiring there. The QROPS does not have to be established in the new country of residence, thus providing greater flexibility and stability, along with choice of scheme provider.


If you have a UK pension and now either reside outside of the UK or plan to, you can transfer your pension into a QROPS, short for Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Schemes – and access a host of benefits.

There are now over three thousand QROPS available, and a myriad of different pension structures on offer.

Finding the best solution for your needs can be frustrating, which is where can help.

We remove the hassle, trouble and time in building the best QROPS solution for your circumstances, and provide you with honest, independent advice and solutions so you can make empowered decisions.
