I have two sources of income, paid employment and self-employed income via online sales. I pay in to my employer pension scheme only. This does not do salary sacrifice, but the pension company claim basic rate tax relief. I'm not fully clear if I should be putting these contributions on my self assessment or not - they are made after tax which seems to be covered by the help for section 19, other parts of that don't make it clear this applies to company pensions where tax relief is claimed. So, should I put the contributions in this section, even though tax relief does get claimed by the pension company? The self employment income puts my in to the 40% tax band, but the salary by itself does not.

Yes, you will show these as payments to your company pension for further relief to be given now that your total income is in the higher rate bracket.

Thank you.
