A Qualifying Non-UK Pension Scheme (QNUPS) is a type of pension scheme available in the United Kingdom. It is designed for individuals who are not domiciled in the UK for tax purposes. QNUPS provides an opportunity for these individuals to make pension contributions outside the UK while still enjoying certain tax advantages.

Key features of QNUPS include:

  1. Non-UK Domiciled Individuals: QNUPS is primarily intended for individuals who are not considered UK domiciled for tax purposes. Domicile, in this context, refers to an individual's permanent home.

  2. Tax Benefits: Contributions made to a QNUPS may offer tax advantages, including potential exemptions from UK inheritance tax on the assets held within the scheme. This can be particularly attractive for individuals looking to mitigate their UK inheritance tax liabilities.

  3. Investment Flexibility: QNUPS allows a broad range of investments, providing individuals with flexibility in managing their pension funds. It can include investments in various asset classes such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and more.

  4. Estate Planning: QNUPS is often used as a tool for estate planning. Assets held within a QNUPS may be outside the scope of UK inheritance tax, contributing to effective wealth transfer and succession planning.


As laws and regulations can change, it's advisable to consult with a financial advisor or tax professional for the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding QNUPS or any other financial matters.

The introduction of QNUPS was part of the Finance Act 2010 in the United Kingdom. The legislation came into effect on February 15, 2010. The purpose of introducing QNUPS was to provide individuals with a vehicle for making pension contributions that are not subject to the same tax treatment as contributions to other types of pension schemes. It was seen as a way to attract international individuals and investors to use the UK as a base for their pension arrangements.
