  • RE: Pension tax relief - higher rate tax payer

    I have since discovered that my pension is a salary sacrifice scheme. I think that in this case all the tax relief is claimed for me, so I do not have to claim for the extra 20% by self assessment. Is this correct?
  • Pension tax relief - higher rate tax payer

    I am a higher rate tax payer and pay into a workplace group pension plan. If only 20% pension tax relief is applied at source, which is the appropriate box on the self assessment form to claim the extra 20% tax relief? I assume it is the top box in the Pension section - "payments to registered pension schemes", as the other option lower down "payments to your employers scheme not deducted before tax"?
