  • Pension lump sum

    Hi. I'm having to fill in a self assessment for the first time due to the child benefit high salary charge. I only earned over £50000 last year due to getting a large redundancy payment however I paid £30,500 into my company pension. So this needs to be off-set. What a job!! Anyway I've fathomed out most things but when I get to the page where you enter the pension details does anyone know which box I should enter it into. ?? The basic rate tax was paid by the provider I think and I had to claim back the higher rate tax relief which I got back in June. I think it's the top box but when I finalised the figures it works out I'm owed over £1000 back which I don't think it correct? Can any one help me please? Thanks. Catherine.
