All French and Italian Rops dropped from UK pension list
All French and Italian schemes have been removed from the HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) list of recognised overseas pension schemes (Rops) said to meet the conditions for accepting UK retirement pots. Last month, 11 French and 19 Italian pension schemes were on the Rops list, published monthly by the UK tax office. However, in the latest update, released last week, no schemes were listed for either of these countries. Many of the schemes removed from the French section were operated by well-known insurance companies such as Swiss Life, Axa and the UK-listed Aviva.
