Transfer to the Vantage SIPP

Transfer your pensions online - read the important information below

Most pensions can be transferred to the Vantage SIPP electronically. There are no forms to fill in - simply apply online, and we will look after the rest of the transfer.

During the application, we will check if your pension can be transferred electronically. If it can, there will be no further paperwork for you to complete and we will proceed with the transfer. It is therefore important you read, understand and agree to the important information below. If you have any questions, please contact us.

If your pension is one of the few that cannot be transferred electronically online, you will be provided with a pre-completed form that you simply need to sign and return to us. Transferring could not be easier.

  • All investments should be held for the long term. They can go down in value as well as up, so you could get back less than you invested. Any yield is variable and not guaranteed.
  • The Vantage SIPP is for people who want to choose their own investments, without advice. Nothing on the website should be regarded as personal advice. If you have any doubts if an investment is right for you, please contact us for written advice.
  • If transferring a pension, please ensure you won't lose any valuable guarantees or other benefits, or incur excessive exit fees.
  • Tax rules can change and the reliefs depend on your personal circumstances.
  • Once in a pension your money is not usually accessible until at least age 55 (57 from 2028). 25% is normally tax free with the rest taxed as income.
  • Please read the HL Vantage SIPP declaration, Terms & Conditions, Important Investment Notes and the Vantage SIPP Key Features (including the Transfer and Contribution Checklists and Common Transfer Declaration) carefully. By applying for our services you agree to be bound by our terms so it is important you understand these documents; please contact us if you have any queries.

I confirm I am applying to join the HL Vantage SIPP. I agree to be bound by the Scheme Rules, and acknowledge that these have been made available to me by Hargreaves Lansdown.

I confirm that I will be a relevant UK individual in any tax year in which personal contributions are paid.

I declare that the total contributions that I will make to the HL Vantage SIPP and any other Registered Pension Scheme where I am entitled to relief under Section 188 of the Finance Act 2004 will not exceed the higher of:

  1. The basic amount (currently £3,600) or
  2. 100% of my Relevant UK Earnings (within the meaning of section 189 of the Finance Act 2004) for that tax year.

This declaration and the particulars given in this application are, to the best of my knowledge and belief, correct and complete.

If an event occurs which means that I will no longer be entitled to relief under to Section 188 of the Finance Act 2004, I will inform Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management by 5th April of the tax year in which the event occurs or 30 days after the event if later.

If I make a contribution, of which part or all is not eligible for tax relief, I will notify you separately on or before the date of the contribution. I will advise Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management Ltd, in writing, within 30 days if I cease to be a United Kingdom resident.

I have not received advice from Hargreaves Lansdown regarding the merits of entering into, or the suitability of any aspect of the HL Vantage SIPP unless that aspect has been covered under a separate agreement for individual advice from a Hargreaves Lansdown Financial Adviser. If I have any doubts I will seek personal advice, in particular regarding the merits of the various pension options I may have available to me now and in the future.

I allow Hargreaves Lansdown to process my application using the information provided. This declaration and any other declaration made by me in connection with this application shall be the basis of the contract between me and Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management Ltd.

I confirm I have not registered with HM Revenue and Customs to protect pension funds built up from a potential Lifetime Allowance tax charge.

In addition to the declaration please read the following statement regarding Hargreaves Lansdown's communications with you.

Hargreaves Lansdown Plc and its group companies will send or email you complimentary issues of our investment publications and information about new products and services. If you would prefer not to receive these, please do let us know. Your personal data will remain confidential, and will not be passed to any other organisation unless required to do so by law.
