Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations, which come into force on 19th March 1997, amend the Personal Pension Schemes (Transfer Payments) Regulations 1988 (S.I. 1988/1014) so as to remove the restriction that a transfer payment may only be made from a personal pension scheme to a retirement benefits scheme if an employer of the scheme member makes or has made contributions to the retirement benefits scheme. This enables a transfer payment to be made from a personal pension scheme to a free standing additional voluntary contributions scheme on and after the date on which these Regulations come into force.
