Pensions (UK & Offshore)

Combining technical pensions law advice with tax insight, for the best outcome.

Jurit works with a range of clients – from employers and other professionals to private individuals – providing expert pensions advice relating to both UK and offshore pension interests.

Whether you want advice on your SIPPS or SSAS, want to move your pension offshore, or simply want to understand what you can and can’t do with your existing schemes, we can help.

Our lawyers will support you with everything from understanding pension rules and their implications and making deed amendments, to the impact of legislative pension changes, as well as advising on tax issues affecting pensions (both UK and offshore).


Our people, your team

Jurit has particular expertise in advising on complex offshore pension schemes and pension trusts and bring this knowledge together with our tax insight.

We advise on the impact of pension law changes and changes to pension tax rules.

This ability to understand complex pensions with an international element, and their impact on an international tax position, is rare, which is why we also work with a range of law firms and IFAs to support them with their own clients with offshore interests.

Our lawyers are used to working collaborating with IFAs, or if you do not have one, we can also recommend trusted advisers. We also work with IFAs directly, to support them with their client requirements on pensions.

How we help

Working closely with you, we can provide expert insight and advice in relation to the following aspects of pensions law and its associated tax implications.

Our advice spans everything from supporting you with existing schemes to understand what you can and can’t do with them, moving pensions offshore, pension transfers and the associated tax triggers and the winding up of pension schemes.
