The QROPS Bureau appoint UK pensions and tax expert to Expert Panel
The QROPS Bureau have announced the appointment of Matthew Harrison ( pictured) to its expert panel. Matthew is a pensions lawyer and tax lawyer and has been providing advisory services to trustees, tax advisers, law firms, and their clients for over ten years. This included several years with a trust company and QROPS provider in Guernsey. More recently almost all of Matthew's time is spent advising on the UK law and taxation of domestic and offshore pension schemes. Matthew is a solicitor and member of the Association of Pension Lawyers.
David White, Partner in The QROPS Bureau said;
"Matthew's appointment is further evidence of The QROPS Bureau's commitment to delivering first class independent technical support to the professional adviser market. Matthew will support us in a number of ways including the provision of supporting statements to our QROPS and QNUPS suitability reports for advisers. "
Matthew Harrison added "QROPS, QNUPS and other non-UK pension schemes play a vital role in the overall pensions landscape, however this is an area in which legislative changes are frequent and requires careful consideration of each client's individual circumstances. This can create opportunities, but it can also give rise to problems if clients are not appropriately advised. I am very much looking forward to working with The QROPS Bureau and the financial advisers that they work with to provide this support."
Further details of how to access Matthew's expertise will be integrated into The QROPS Bureau's suitability report process going forwards. In the meantime if further details are required please contact us.
