1st Retail Q/ROPS Super Fund on HMRC ROPS list

Recommended Posts

The first ROPS public offer retail superannuation fund has appeared on the most recent HMRC ROPS list since the de-listing of all Australian retail Super Funds in July 2015.

 

The Super Fund is still only an option for those over the age of 55 but means that for anyone over that age looking to transfer UK Pensions to Australia they can now do so without having to open a Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF).

 

There will be advantages of this such as the process of transferring pensions will be less time consuming and there will not be the responsibilities involved with that of effectively becoming a Trustee of the SMSF.

 

However there will also be some disadvantages such as, for balances over around $200k - $250k it is likely to be more expensive and certainly more restrictive in terms of investments, I believe there only to be around 20 underlying investment options to choose from.

 

I also understand there to be a further over 55s ROPS Super Fund (public offer) coming very soon however I am not yet sure of details such as costs or investment options.

 

 

Regards

G`day Andrew,

Just come across this post, could you please update your original comments......

Is this original pioneer Australian Q/ROPS public offer retail superannuation fund still operational and available?  Do you recommend them?

Are there any additional Australian Q/ROPS public offer retail superannuation fund still operational and available? Do you also recommend them? (You seemed to indicate in your original post that other similar Q/ROPS public offer retail funds would soon follow?)....

Many Thanks

Hello MaxV

Yes it is.

 I have recommended them as the Australian QROPS for previous clients to transfer their UK pensions into.

Not that I am aware of.

There is as I am aware at least two other companies looking to establish Super Funds and have them added to the ROPS list at the moment.

However when this will occur is unknown as one of those two companies have been waiting for HMRC to accept their QROPS registration for many months now.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Andy
