International Pensions

A globally mobile executive may have pension funds in a number of jurisdictions (including the UK) and/or may have funds in an offshore pension plan based in a low tax jurisdiction. Bona fide international plans are caught by anti-avoidance rules that can have draconian tax implications. Together with your financial advisor we can help and advise on:

  • The UK taxation of benefits from your pension schemes
  • The application of the remittance basis to pensions
  • The timing of benefits and the best way to receive them
  • The importance of double taxation treaties to avoid a double tax charge
  • The export of your UK pension scheme
