    Cash in your South African retirement annuities

    If you have retirement annuities, pensions or provident funds in South Africa, our financial emigration team  can help you cash these assets in before they mature. The process is complex and each person’s case is unique, so it pays to have an expert helping you out.

    How am I allowed to send my retirement funds out of South Africa?

    In 2008, the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) implemented a law change that allows South Africans who have financially emigrated to access their retirement annuities before they mature.

    We help South Africans who have formally emigrated to withdraw and transfer their retirement annuities and other funds.

    Having helped South Africans, both abroad and at home, with financial and migration solutions for over two decades, Sable International is uniquely equipped to help you navigate through this complex and time consuming process.

    The key benefits of our service include:

    • Trusted

      We are registered with the FSB (South Africa), HMRC (UK) and the FCA (Australia).

    • Experienced

      We are an established player in the financial services and immigration industries.

    • Individual service

      You will have a dedicated specialist who will take care of you throughout the process.

    • Tax services

      Experienced tax experts will ensure that we find the most tax-efficient solution possible.

    • Easy withdrawals

      Our good relationship with insurance houses will ensure a hassle-free fund withdrawal.

    • Forex experts

      You will have access to great currency rates when you transfer your funds abroad.

    • Investment advice

      Our wealth division can help you invest your funds in the UK or anywhere else.

    • Free report
