PENSION RELIEF By: Clare

From 6 April 2011, income tax relief for pension contributions has been restricted to a much lower annual allowance of £50,000 per year, with the ability to carry forward any unused relief for three years. This allowance applies to all types of input into a pension scheme, whether they are from an individual or a company.
If earnings are less that £50,000, then pension contributions are restricted to 100% of earnings for each tax year.
Where contributions exceed the above limits they incur a tax charge on the excess to claw back excess income tax relief. This is called the annual allowance charge and is collected through the self assessment tax return.
