In the majority of cases, we do not charge for our services. Instead, we receive remuneration from the RRSP provider of the Canadian plan. Therefore, we do not have to charge our clients for helping them transfer their UK pension funds to Canada.

This suggests to me that you will receive commission from the pension as I have seen it worded this way before. That is a no go for me.
Hi Banff, I have been on this forum for 13 years and made over 400 posts over that time, and have helped many posters with there questions or queries over that time, and yes, Pension Transfers to Canada is what I do. You requested help and answers to your questions, and thats what I always try and provide on here. Many people have used my services on this forum over the years and some may also reply to your post. I regards to your "quote" , I can receive renumeration one of 2 ways when I help a client, either directly from the company who the client is pacing business with or I can charge a fee for service directly to the client, either way the client has the option and full transparency.

If the purpose of you coming onto a forum is to try and get answers to your questions, then that is what I will look to provide, especially when it is related to an area that I would like to think I know a little bit about ........and also, you did get a response from somebody who has been in the same circumstances as yourself, I too had my pension funds in the UK before transferring them to Canada

Touched a nerve I think? Apologies if so but not wanting to be sold or swayed when I am asking questions. If I want that, I'll contact someone directly.
Your post signature also did not have your website attached first off and now it does which would have made me discount comments anyway and is an informal way of advertising your services.

Which is perfectly fine, as per site rules. Mjwalker007 is a long established member and it's no problem for him to do so.

Now let's get this thread back on track eh?

I am sure you are and I am sure you have helped I just didn't like the first few comments collaborating information and then trying to solicit services. I like that you have your website at the bottom now as now I can see that you do have a vested interest in comments and has the necessary declaration that any registered investment adviser should have online. Working in law, I do have some knowledge of what can and cannot be done.

Last post from me and this thread can get back on track. Although I feel it was still on track and people should know if commenters have a vested interest.

As a newbie looking forward to what else this site has to offer the expat! Lockdown has given me more times to look and find things such as these!

Hi, welcome to BE.

I've removed your contact details, we ask that you please don't put them on the forum, which is for your own sake - BE is a public forum so they'll be picked up by every spambot & weirdo out there! People can contact you via the forum if they wish.

Where are you about to move to, back to the UK?
