QNUPS for Expats

A Qualifying Non-UK Pension Scheme (QNUPS) is a special type of vehicle used to protect individuals from UK Inheritance Tax (IHT). You must meet specific regulations to be exempt from UK IHT. Anyone is eligible to invest in a QNUPS and its widely available in several countries, not just countries which have Double Taxation Agreements (DTA) with the UK.

Benefits

Reasons people use a QNUPS are for tax efficiencies, low cost, low entry levels, alternative investments accepted, Inheritance tax purposes.

Inheritance Tax

QNUPS was introduced in February 2010 by the UK government as a way for an individual to protect their assets in an offshore pension scheme to mitigate their inheritance tax bill. A set of rules must be followed for the QNUPS to be effective.

Availability

Many countries around the world do not have Double Taxation Agreements (DTA) with the UK. With a QNUPS there are no reporting requirements even if there isn’t a DTA in place. This can be hugely advantageous as you legally don’t have to report back to HMRC.

Invested a lump sum and transferred my pension with SJB Global last month. Happy so far and looking forward to seeing how the investments perform. I was really impressed with the process and explanation of complex terminology.

Barbera Louis

Having previously gotten cold feet after almost going through with the transferal of my UK private pension to a QROPS with another wealth management company who, for a number of (good) reasons I felt uneasy with, I decided to look independently for an alternative adviser and was fortunate to come across Sam Barber quite by chance. Thanks to his endless patience in answering all of my questions and his excellent support throughout the entire process (which seemed very daunting initially), I am now confident that my future pension is in the best hands. He has put my mind at rest over so many issues and my initial lack of trust in such financial institutions has fully dissipated since becoming his client. I have no hesitation in recommending Sam to anyone who is even just considering transferring a pension out of the UK. He will not talk you into anything that you are unsure about and no question is too stupid. He knows what he’s talking about, gives sound advice and is 100% reliable. There are without doubt many sharks out there – happily Sam is not one of them.

I transferred my pension 6 months ago after speaking with a number of advisers in relation to my enquiry. Having initially being overwhelmed with the ordeal, Sam made me feel at ease with the whole process. And on our first semi annual review I am very pleased with the performance and feel like I have made the right decision. I would recommend SJB global to any expat who is looking to transfer their pension.

Jade Bolton

I started the process of finding information out about how to transfer my UK pension overseas and got a bit lost with it all. After sending out a few inquiries, I decided to go with Jake as I found his advice and costs to be completely transparent. The other 2 advisers had recommended me a QROPS and Jake said I was best suited to transfer to a SIPP and sent me links to authoritative websites to back up his reasons. I would recommend Jake to anyone who is looking for transparent advice.
