QropsUSA.Biz Provides Assistance for Fidelity 401K QROPS

Living in the USA, and having a UK pension plan has just become even a greater problem due to additional IRS tax reporting. With mammoth fines for not reporting a UK pension, you need to transfer your UK pension to the US.

United States (April 19, 2014) -- Living in the USA, and having a UK pension plan has just become even a greater problem due to additional IRS tax reporting. With mammoth fines for not reporting a UK pension, you need to transfer your UK pension to the US.

The problem is the only way to do this without creating a tax nightmare is using a QROPS. Although there are fifteen registered QROPS schemes in the USA. Only one is an open scheme, a non company sponsored scheme. That is the Fidelity 401K.

The Fidelity 401k is a HMRC registered QROPS. However the IRS see the ability to transfer a UK pension to a 401K as a tax loophole. Given this this avenue is closed indefinitely.

There are solutions open for a USA resident and national to transfer to a FATCA compliant QROPS.

A QROPS transfer can provide the following benefits for a USA resident:

No UK income Tax liability on pension income. UK pensions are taxed at source. QROPS is not subject to UK tax.

QROPS allows your assets to be structured in USD, with income paid in USD. This can be paid to a USA bank account, in USD. A UK pension must be paid in GBP. This leaves you open to currency rate fluctuations outside of your control. QROPS allows you to take control back.

No need to buy an annuity or ASP (Alternatively Secured Pension) at age 75. This affords you greater control. Your existing UK provision may lead you to take a low rate of return. For example, once a fixed annuity of 3.5%pa is purchased by your UK scheme that would then be your return for life. Your QROPS pension could pay you an income of 10%pa. It also allows your fund to continue growing whilst you take an income. Which can then provide a higher pension income in later years. This is an important factor to hedge against the effect of price inflation on your pension income.

No Tax liability on your pension fund assets as they continue to grow. Assets in your UK pension fund are subject to Tax, both in the UK and in the USA. Once transferred you’re fund is not subject to Tax, and continues to grow Tax free.

A far wider range of investments, ranging from cash, unit trusts, shares, commodities, gold, ETF’s, commercial property (including overseas property) and much more.

Fully portable from country to country.

You are able to leave the remainder of your pension fund to your heirs on your death. As most people will choose a single Annuity, once in receipt; your UK pension has no value that can be passed to your partner or children. Whereas your QROPS pension can be left to whoever you wish.

If not vested in an Annuity on your death your pension fund is subject to a 55% tax charge in the UK. A QROPS would pass the total value to your beneficiaries and is not subject to this tax charge.

A QROPS allows access to benefits from age 50 if you have been outside the UK for 5 tax years or more.

A QROPS allows access to 30% Cash Lump Sum from age 50 if you have been outside the UK for 5 tax years or more. This is 5% more than allowed under UK pension legislation.

Pension rights transferred into a HMRC Approved QROPS are protected from UK inheritance tax.

By moving UK pension benefits to a HMRC Approved QROPS, assets are effectively removed from the UK tax net. For many expatriates the avoidance of UK taxes on pension income and the dangers of additional pension tax levies are an important planning consideration.

Also the treatment of UK pensions under the UK/USA DTA (Double Taxation Agreement) is not good. The UK Government tax interest on your fund before you get it, and the IRS tax the interest on your fund once you have had it. The IRS also tax any Tax Free Lump Sum if you are a US Citizen. If you could move your UK pension to the US, you would be so much better off. Problem is you cannot move a UK pension to the States.

There is a website dedicated to offering advice on QROPS transfers for USA residents and nationals. (http://www.qropsusa.biz)

Moving your UK pension arrangements to a QROPS if suitable given your own particular circumstances, can only improve your position.

Most importantly, once moved to a QROPS you have control over your money. If left in your UK pension arrangements it is highly likely that additional constraints will be put in place which will adversely affect you.

Getting the Facts on High-frequency Trading Straight at The Speed Traders Workshop with Edgar Perez, Author of Knightmare on Wall Street

Edgar Perez, former McKinsey and IBM consultant, is a global expert, author of The Speed Traders, Knightmare on Wall Street, and the course director of The Speed Traders Workshop, "How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets 'RIGGED' by Wall Street's 'Flash Boys', High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools", in New York City, Washington DC, Boston, Munich, London, Dubai, Brussels, Tokyo, Beijing and Shanghai.

New York, NY, USA (April 18, 2014) -- Global scrutiny of high-frequency trading and whether it gives some investors unfair advantage has intensified amid government probes and the March 31, 2014 publication of "Flash Boys" by Michael Lewis. While those examinations have focused mostly on U.S. equity markets, such as dark pools run by banks and broker-dealers and exchanges owned by companies including Nasdaq OMX, IntercontinentalExchange Group's NYSE Euronext and Bats Global Markets, high-frequency traders are active internationally in futures, FX and fixed income markets, as they also run multi-asset strategies.

High-frequency traders have been called many things, from emerging masters of the universe and market pioneers to exploiters, computer geeks, and even predators and thieves. Everyone in the business of investing has an opinion of speed traders, but how many really understand how they operate? The shadow people of the investing world, today's high-frequency traders have decidedly kept a low profile, until now.

The Speed Traders Workshop, "How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets 'RIGGED' by Wall Street's 'Flash Boys', High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools" (http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com), is the first and most comprehensive initiation to the world of high-frequency trading., opens the door to the secretive world of computerized low-latency trading, the most controversial form of investing today; in the name of protecting the algorithms they have spent so much time perfecting, speed traders almost never talk to the press and try to disclose as little as possible about how they operate.

The "flash crash", the suspended BATS IPO, the botched Facebook IPO, Knight Capital's trading malfunction and NASDAQ's Flash Freeze are just a few of the milestones in the history of high-frequency trading that will be dissected with participants.

Knightmare on Wall Street (http://www.knightmareonwallstreet.com), the fascinating story of Knight Capital put together by course director Edgar Perez, was the most favorably reviewed Kindle edition book on Amazon in 2013, with an average rating of 5 out of five stars. Knight Capital, founded by Kenneth Pasternak and Walter Raquet in 1995, had seen its fortunes change as U.S. regulators made a series of changes in the structure of financial markets and computers were progressively expanding their share of trading. The Flash Crash, the infamous 1,000 point drop of the DJIA on May 6, 2010 (the largest one-day point decline in history), illustrated how market structure problems could almost instantaneously cascade from one market participant to the rest.

Mr. Perez is widely regarded as the preeminent global expert and speaker in the specialized areas of algorithmic and high-frequency trading. He is also author of The Speed Traders, An Insider's Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World (http://www.thespeedtraders.com), published in English, Chinese and Bahasa Indonesia.

Actyl Group Issues Statement on Misquoting and Misrepresentation of Facts in CBC News Story

'Go Public' piece included inaccuracies on the work of the firm in recruiting skilled, hard-working international job candidates.

EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada (April 16, 2014) -- On April 14, 2014, as part of its "Go Public" series, CBC News published an article and video on the hiring of temporary foreign workers in Canada, specifically in the western provinces. The article detailed alleged accounts of discrimination against Canadian employees in favor of international workers.

In one portion of the article, CBC News's Kathy Tomlinson reported on Actyl Group's role in recruiting international workers, misquoting President and CEO Linda West and including number of inaccuracies. One of the biggest errors was that Actyl does not work with the Victoria company featured in the article.

Actyl Group has issued the following statement from West regarding the article:

"From its inception, Actyl Group has always been a no-fee charging company, which means that employers who use our services pay our recruiting service fees - and no one else. We take great pride in offering life-changing opportunities to people, including both Canadian and international job candidates, as well as helping Canadian businesses grow and hire more skilled employees. We have a wonderful team of professionals who operate with the highest level of integrity that is at the core of everything they do.

Considering this, we were extremely disappointed that Canada's national public broadcaster, the CBC, would misrepresent facts and misquote me personally, altering the meaning of what I said as I described the work of the Actyl team. The fact remains that we always do our best to recruit Canadian workers first, turning to international candidates when we do not receive an adequate number of applications to fill needed positions. We hope this sets the record straight on our company's role in helping businesses throughout Canada grow and thrive."

About Actyl Group:
Actyl Group is a leader in international workforce solutions, providing customized services based on employers' needs. The company leverages decades of industry experience and expertise, helping businesses and organizations find the Canadian and international workers they need to grow in a sustainable way.

Carmel Brantley Chosen for Gallery's Artist Showcase

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that South Florida fine art photographer Carmel Brantley is the gallery's newest featured artist and will be featured in their Artist Showcase.

Jupiter, FL, USA (April 15, 2014) -- Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that South Florida fine art photographer Carmel Brantley is the gallery's newest featured artist and will be featured in their Artist Showcase.

Carmel is inspired by light, texture, and form, as her photographs are modern expressions of depth and detail.

Carmel resides in South Florida with her husband, photographer Robert Brantley. Together, they operate Brantley Photography, a commercial photography studio specializing in architecture and interior design.

Carmel states this about her art, "I am drawn to subject matter that have an intrinsic and often subtle, simple beauty to their being. I find intrigue in allowing the camera to record the complexities of the subject, never certain of what details and secrets might emerge. Classic and rich, sepia toned images reminiscent of an earlier time, have always been a passion of mine. So too are bold, stimulating, contemporary black and white images. I strive for intimacy, seeking to explore, embrace and define that which the camera captures. I am reminded each time I peer through the viewfinder of the magical power the camera possess, and its limitless capacity to engage, surprise and reveal a new perspective on the familiar."?

IAPAM Announces Next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium in Scottsdale: May 17-18

Medical practices can thrive by adding non-insurance based services to their practices, such as botox, dermal fillers, anti-aging treatments (chemical peels/ microdermabrasion), lasers for hair removal/tattoo removal & non-invasive body sculpting, and medically supervised weight management. To educate physicians on how to profitably add these procedures to their practices, the IAPAM has spaces remaining at its next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium: May 17-18 in Scottsdale, AZ.

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (April 12, 2014) -- There has been much talk in the physician community regarding Obamacare: the Affordable Care Act or the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Many physicians are concerned about how this new program will impact the health of their patients and the health of their medical practices.

However, there is evidence that by adding minimally-invasive treatments, such as: botox, dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, body contouring technologies (e.g. skin tightening, fat reduction), lasers for skin rejuvenation/tattoo removal/hair removal, and medically supervised weight management programs (e.g. the hCG Diet), the income of a practice will increase, since payments for these treatments are made directly and immediately to the clinic.

Therefore, to provide physicians seeking both clinical and business training in adding these aesthetic modalities, the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine ( IAPAM ) designed its Aesthetic Medicine Symposium to give physicians ALL the information, physician resources, patient materials, practice tools (e.g. editable consent forms, etc.), clinical DVDs, and industry-leading didactic and hands-on training, that they need to begin offering aesthetics when they finish the conference.

The IAPAM is the only complete education program that offers:

An Accelerated program: physicians and their staff can be certified over a weekend;
Clinical training DVDs to take back to one's practice;
Board Certified Dermatologists as instructors;
Internationally Recognized Certification;
CME (Continuing Medical Education) credits;
1 Year of comprehensive Practice Support (which continues as long as one is a member);
And much, much, more!

"The IAPAM has noticed a sharp increase in the registrations for its cosmetic procedures, hands-on, CME training programs like botox/fillers, lasers, microdermabrasion, and non-invasive body shaping; along with its medically supervised weight loss program, all of which are not insurance-covered procedures, and which are in demand by a majority of physicians' existing patients," says Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com).

For more information on the IAPAM's May 17-18, 2014 Symposium with Botox Training, watch this comprehensive video at http://youtu.be/bBQlS0CpOvw or to register for the May 17-18 Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, please contact the IAPAM, at 1-800-219-5108 x704.

New NanoMarkets Report Projects Smart Windows Market to Exceed $750 million by 2019

According to a new study by the industry analyst firm NanoMarkets - "Smart Windows Markets: 2014-2021" -- revenues from smart windows will reach $766 million by 2019 and then ramp up to $1.1 billion by 2021.

Glen Allen, Virginia (April 8, 2014) -- According to a new study by the industry analyst firm NanoMarkets - "Smart Windows Markets: 2014-2021" -- revenues from smart windows will reach $766 million by 2019 and then ramp up to $1.1 billion by 2021. In addition, the related - but more mature - market for smart automotive mirrors will reach $1.4 billion in 2019.


About the report:

NanoMarkets has been providing coverage of the smart windows market for six years and this report brings together the latest data from NanoMarkets' ongoing forecasts in this sector. The report provides eight-year market forecasts in volume (square meters) and value ($ million) terms for electrochromic, photochromic, thermochromic, SPD and PDLC windows, along with projections for the smart auto mirror sector.

In these forecasts, breakouts are provided for automotive (cars and trucks), public transport, aerospace, residential construction and commercial construction for each of the key smart windows technologies. We also assess the latest product market strategies of the key suppliers of smart windows. Some of the companies discussed in this report include: 3M, Asahi Glass, BASF, Chromogenics, DuPont, Eastman Chemical/Solutia, GE, Gentex, Guardian Industries, Hitachi, NSG, Pleotint, PPG, Research Frontiers, Sage, Saint-Gobain, Scienstry, Southwall, Solvay, Suntek, SWITCH Materials, Toray, US e-Chromics, and View.

Findings from the report:

The smart windows sector will be dominated by active technologies over the next decade despite their higher cost. This is because of the ability of smart windows technologies to provide instantaneous response to user needs as natural light conditions change. Although passive smart windows technologies will continue to expand throughout the forecasting period covered by the report, NanoMarkets expects that they will never be much more than a niche.

The report also claims that SPD and electrochromic smart windows will find a growing role in the automotive sector. Although primarily found in luxury cars today, NanoMarkets expects these high-tech windows to be much more widely used in the coming decade. They are no longer just a "cool" design feature but can lead to a significant lowering of fuel costs through the reduction in the use of air conditioning. Consequently, NanoMarkets believes that sales of smart windows to the car, truck and public transport sectors will leap from around $23 million today to $185 million by 2019.

Meanwhile, the sales of smart windows for use in buildings will also leap primarily because of regulations in Europe and the US requiring the buildings to be zero net energy compliant towards. NanoMarkets believes that smart windows will turn out to be a critical enabling technology for zero net energy buildings not just because of their ability to reduce cooling bills but also they can be hybridized with photovoltaics layers which will enable them to generate energy, not just conserve it. NanoMarkets believes that as a result smart windows for residential construction will reach $117 million by 2019 and sales to commercial construction were $460 million by 2019.

Electrochromic smart windows (including glass and film) will reach $622 million by 2019 making electrochromics the largest segment of the entire smart windows business. NanoMarkets believes this may have much to do with the fact that this sector can boast significant investment by influential firms such as Corning, GE and Saint-Gobain, and Seagate. Alternatives to the electrochromic materials platform do not have the same level of clout behind them.

About NanoMarkets:

NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging market opportunities in energy and electronics markets created by developments in advanced materials. The firm has published many reports on green building materials including smart coatings, building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) and OLED lighting.
