Read the accessibility statement for HMRC forms.

Details

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.

Email HMRC to ask for the form in Welsh.
