I recently returned from Vietnam and am earning 50,000 per annum. I have 2 children. I want to apply for Child Benefit and the guidance states if you earn over 50,000. Does this mean I do not need to go to self-assessment? Also, I make contributions to a company pension, does this deduct from my salary? Thereby taking it below 50,000 and meaning I don't need to do self-assessment? Thanks for any advice!

Hi,
 
You would complete the Self Assessment if your earnings were over the £50,000 figure, the pension contributions depend if they
are deducted before or after tax, if it's before tax your taxable income has already been reduced.

Thank you.
