The panel will discuss the U.S. tax law and treaty provisions that exempt SIPPs from the ordinary treatment as a non-qualified plan, detail events that trigger U.S. recognition, and outline tax planning and reporting guidance on distributions from SIPPs.

- How are distributions from UK accounts reported on U.S. tax returns?
- What are the differences in U.S. treatment of various UK schemes?
