(2) Where, at any time on or after 6th April 2006, the employer makes contributions under the pension scheme referred to in paragraph (1) for the benefit of the qualifying employee, Revenue and Customs may allow the contributions to be treated as if they were relevant migrant member contributions under paragraph 2 of Schedule 33 if—
(a)they are satisfied that the conditions in paragraph (3) are met, and
(b)the scheme manager complies with any prescribed benefit crystallisation information requirements imposed on the scheme manager.
(3) The conditions are that—
(a)the contribution consists of the expenses of paying any sum, or of providing benefits, pursuant to a pension scheme which is established outside the United Kingdom; and
(b)Revenue and Customs are satisfied that that scheme corresponds to such a scheme as is registered under Part 4 of the 2004 Act.
(4) For the purposes of this article and article 17, “Prescribed benefit crystallisation information requirements“ means requirements imposed by regulation 2 of the Pension Schemes (Information Requirements – Qualifying Overseas Pension Schemes, Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Schemes and Corresponding Relief) Regulations 2006(5) (“the Overseas Information Requirements Regulations”).
For the purposes of this article, the provisions of regulation 2 of the Overseas Information Requirements Regulations shall apply to qualifying employees.

(6) In this article “block transfer” has the same meaning as in paragraph 22(6) of Schedule 36 but treating the references there to “the member” as references to the qualifying employee.
