  • How to carry forward unused annual pension contribution allowance

    I have read and have understood the rules about carrying forward previous unused annual pension allowances into the most recent complete tax year 2021-22, for which I am now completing my online self-assessment. My question is about how I practically do this in the online self-assessment form? I cannot see an option to carry forward unused pension allowances within the form. I see various types of carry forward, for example for carrying forward previous years' losses for people who are self-employed. The "Adjustments to tax due" section allows for reductions from previous years to be listed, but carrying forward annual pension allowance is not specifically mentioned. Should I go to my 2020-21 self-assessment and make an adjustment?
