Payments in respect of relevant members: reporting details for more than one member or more than one payment (APSS253 insert)
Ref: APSS253 insert https://public-online.hmrc.gov.uk/lc/content/xfaforms/profiles/forms.html?contentRoot=repository:///Applications/SpecPersTax_B/1.0/APSS253_insert&template=APSS253insertv2.6.xdp
Use form APSS253 if you’re a scheme manager of a QROPS to tell HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) about payments made or treated as made in respect of relevant members. You must report any payments made from funds that were transferred to a QROPS within 10-years of that transfer. After that 10 year period you do not need to report a payment if the member payment provisions do not apply.
You should also use this form to tell us if the payment is a taxable overseas transfer made out of your scheme’s funds that have had UK tax relief.

You’ll need to fill in the form fully before you can print it. You can’t save a partly completed form so we suggest you gather all your information together before you begin to fill it in.
