  • How to claim back pension tax relief of previous years?

    Hi, I'm new to self assessment and currently fill out my 2021 / 2022 assessment. I am an employee and pay tax under PAYE. I pay into a company pension and would like to claim the 40% tax relief based on my higher income rate. a) This is the first year that I fill out the self-assessment. How can I also claim the relief for 2019-2020? Do I just add the amount paid in 2019-2020 to the amount that I have paid in 2021-2022? b) How/Where can I carry forward my annual allowance from 2019-2020 and 2020-2021? I have surpassed my annual allowance in 2021-2022, but not in the previous years and would like to use my allowance from the previous years. Thanks and kind regards
