Transfer your South African pension to the UK

Sable International's financial emigration service

Sable International's financial emigration service is aimed at helping South Africans withdraw and transfer pensions and other assets to any offshore destination. We deal with the red tape so that the process is smooth and hassle-free.

If you are not sure whether you can withdraw and transfer your South African retirement savings, all you need to do is follow these steps:

  • Complete our free, no obligation, online assessment
  • Speak to your assigned emigration specialist about your options
  • Receive a detailed report and quote on transferring the full value of your South African retirement annuities

Once you can transfer your South African pension offshore, you may need assistance with reinvesting and navigating the tax implications of their destination country. Our consultants work closely with our international team of wealth advisers, based in London, to make sure you get the best advice and most efficient tax structure.

Another option for expats, once they have transferred the pensions out of South Africa, is to invest the proceeds into a new (or existing) UK pension.
