Re: Transfer UK pension to QROPS in Switzerland after 5 UK tax years

Hi, I can assure you I am not. I just read a lot about it on the HMRC website and on the internet in general.
I worked in the UK from 2001 until 2006 for 2 different companies.
2nd job was for 3.5 years which is the pension I am trying to transfer now. The pension of GBP 10k which I transferred already was with another company where I stayed 1.5 years.
I studied the HMRC website and all of their FAQs and I can not see it being wrong transferring my pension to a QROPS after 5 years and not getting fined.
So I am not talking about a huge amount here. I just do not want to transfer it to a pilar 2 but have access to the cash instead.
