Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme - QROPS
In April 2006 HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) announced that they were amending pension legislation to accommodate transfers out of UK pension schemes principally designed for individuals who have left, or plan to leave the UK permanently. This legislation has enabled pension schemes outside the UK to apply to HMRC for approval as a Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme, referred to as QROPS. Individuals with accrued UK pension scheme benefits can apply to have these transferred into a QROPS.
Due to revisions in legislation imposed by HMRC in April and May 2012, COPIA International is now only open to existing members who continue to enjoy the benefits afforded to QROPS prior to its’ delisting.
