Why might it be a good idea to transfer your Private Pension from the UK to Ireland now?
✅ Coronavirus & Stock Market Volatility – Recent extreme stock market volatility has left many pension investors struggling to get information on the impact of the crisis on their pensions in the UK. Having an Irish based advisor will allow you to get access to information far quicker in times of uncertainty.
✅ BREXIT – The current crisis in the UK has made may people wary of keeping their money in the UK, especially in the event of a ‘Hard’ BREXIT.
✅ Tax – A QROPS registered pension fund can accept transfers from the UK to Ireland without any tax liability
✅ Access – when you access your Pension in later years you will be receiving your money from an Irish Pension Fund as opposed to a UK Pension fund
✅Inheritance – should you pass away your beneficiaries will be claiming your pension from Ireland and not dealing with a pension provider in the UK which would lead to significant delays
✅ Local Irish Advice – your pension fund is administered in Ireland with access to local advice from your Irish advisor
✅ Reputable Providers – your pension fund will be placed with large international reputable pension providers in Ireland
✅ Protect Your Money – protecting what you have built up in your pension fund is important. We can help you decide if now is the right time for you to transfer your UK Pension

✅ Phone, Email or Webchat – We have clients all over Ireland and staying in contact with them is important during this difficult time. We can look after you by phone, email or webchat, whatever suits you best.
