  • Pension tax allowance as Employee but also Landlord

    I am an employee with one company but also an independent landlord. My employer and I pay into a pension, and I understand I receive tax relief on this, so I pay a bit less tax on my payslip than if I wasn't paying into this pension. When I complete my Self Assessment for being a landlord, I am asked how much I earn in my employment and how much tax I pay, as shown on my P60. I'm not asked how much I pay into an employee pension. Therefore it seems the pension relief isn't taken into account in the calculation, and it looks like I haven't paid enough tax. The self assessment calculation therefore requires me to pay more tax than I need to. Is this correct?
