  • RE: NHS pension contributions as locum GP

    Hi Thanks for replying I am in the NHS pension scheme which is a net-pay scheme, not a relief at source. So would I be right in thinking this extra payment, which hadn’t been deducted from pay before tax, should actually be accounted for in box 3, rather than box 1? Thanks
  • NHS pension contributions as locum GP

    Hi I’m a GP I contribute to NHS pension scheme I mainly am employed and so my pension is taken off my salary at source , so doesn’t need to be accounted for on the tax return I also have some self-employed income as a Locum, where I have paid employee pension contributions and submitted them to NHS pensions. My understanding is that I can claim tax relief on this remaining pension contribution I’ve made but wanted to ensure it was on the right section of the tax return. Is it box 3 on TR4? (Ie contribution to employer pension scheme) as it is, if you like, an extra contribution to my employer scheme but via self-employed income stream Thanks
