Recognised overseas pension schemes notification list

16 February 2021

The list of Recognised Overseas Pensions Schemes (ROPS) notifications has been updated.

The list is of schemes that have told HMRC they meet the conditions to be a ROPS and have asked to be included on the list.

There have been ten scheme names added to the list, and none removed. No amendments have been cited in this update.

A very welcome change is that HMRC now lists the updates, as follows.

Schemes added

Australia

Brimar SMSF Super Fund

Goldhill Superannuation Fund

J A O’Sullivan Super Fund

KM Greig Super Fund

Manchap Super

Phillips QROPS Fund

The Jackie and Gary Giles Super Fund

Tierney Super Fund

Jersey

The Alexander Forbes Offshore Staff Pension Scheme

The Brooks Macdonald Occupational Pension Scheme

An updated list of ROPS notifications is published on the first and 15th day of each month. If this date falls on a weekend or UK public holiday the list will be published on the next working day. Sometimes the list is updated at short notice to temporarily remove schemes while reviews are carried out, for example, where fraudulent activity is suspected.

The requirements to be a ROPS changed from 6 April 2017 - find out about the changes for ROPS requirements.
