The amount that should be in the pension is the contribution, plus the amount deducted at the basic rate of tax.
The remaining 20% would be paid back from HMRC, for example, a contribution of £133.33 would be as follows
- £106.66 paid into the pension, £26.27 relief added and then £26.67 paid back from HMRC.
This would be a total cost of your pension contribution of £80.
If you have a query regarding your specific contributions, please write to use enclosing evidence of the contribution
and the relief claimed by the pension provider, and the amount that was deducted from your wage.
