UK - HM Revenue & Customs has changed the way pension funds are registered in the UK, to reduce future problems for pension administrators.
It means registered pension schemes must submit information electronically, whereas previously, the information could also be submitted on paper.
Applications to register a pension scheme, pension scheme returns, accounting for tax returns, and notifications of the winding-up of a registered pension scheme, are among the details that now must be registered online.
Julie Elsey, head of pension schemes services at HMRC,said: "If you're a pension scheme administrator, and you haven't registered to file online, you should do so as soon as possible. Otherwise, you may be storing up problems for the future."
