I have audited a fund where the accountant has wound it up but has distributed assets in the form of in-specie payments. Members are past preservation age. He has treated the in-specie payments as a pension rather than a lump sum. I am uncertain whether this is a reportable contravention (ran through ESAT, was not prompted) or if there are any other compliance requirements of me. I appreciate any guidance.
