Why Transfer my pension?
Transferring your UK pension can be confusing and a time consuming process. We remove much of the rigmarole of transferring your pension from the United Kingdom to New Zealand. We explain how the transfer process works; what to look out for when transferring your pension to a New Zealand qualifying recognised overseas pension scheme (QROPS); and provide expert advice around UK pension legislation and entitlements in New Zealand.
We can also inform you on how much tax you will pay when you transfer your UK pension to NZ.
