I am aware that:
In some circumstances a transfer of funds might
not be a recognised transfer and may be treated
as an unauthorised payment giving rise to a
liability to pay tax in the UK
In some circumstances a future payment made
or treated as made by a QROPS may be treated
as an unauthorised payment giving rise to a
liability to pay tax in the UK
I understand that in some circumstances a
transfer of funds might give rise to a liability to
pay tax in the UK
I undertake to pay tax to HMRC and provide
information relating to taxable transfers
To the best of my knowledge and belief the
information given in this form is correct and complete.
