Pensions have to be transferred to a scheme that is approved by HMRC or you'll pay tax in the UK.

Personally I'd avoid any of the "pension transfer advisers" becuase no middleman ever does something for nothing! If your UK pensions are with one of the big providers (the likes of AXA for example) then I'd talk to them direct 'cos they'll probably have offices here anyway.

If not, I'd speak directly to a fund manager over here. I've not moved mine yet - I'm waiting for the dollar to weaken a bit, but I've got a Kiwisaver fund over here with Gareth Morgan and I'll probably move the UK stuff to him eventually.
See his details here http://www.gmk.co.nz/pages/content.a...T=UK%20pension
