  • RE: UK Tax on Australian Superannuation

    Hello HMRC I will be returning to the UK having lived in Australia for 15 years (now an Australian citizen). I have closed my Superannuation account and transferred the lump sum amount to my Australian bank account. This was tax free as I am 60 years old. On return to the UK I will transfer the money from my Australian bank account to a UK bank account to buy a house, car etc and to use the remainder as living expenses as I am not yet of pension age i.e.67 years old. Would I have any UK tax liability on the money I transfer?
