We finally got the confirmation of what it all means as promised and it was more or less as expected. So this edition of the Bulletin was very much pre ordained, apart from the announcement that Jersey is set to join the QROPS community (link below)
There are contrasting responses from the various jurisdictions, from Guernsey changing their legislation to be compliant with the new regime, to the Isle of Man taking a more cautious approach and hedging their bets, as outlined in the articles below.
Weve included a link to the HMRC QROPS Guidance so you can get it straight from the horses mouth, with other articles relating to specific jurisdictions, and a couple of articles giving perspectives across the jurisdictions. There is one more cautionary article which suggests there may well be further changes in the pipeline.
Our stance has always been consistent observe both the spirit as well as the letter of the legislation and bear in mind that from a jurisdictional point of view, one size does NOT fit all. ESPECIALLY NOW.
We dont write these articles, nor does their inclusion mean we endorse or agree with the content. We think they are interesting and may provoke thought or conversation
