  • Self assessment - Where do I enter details to claim pension higher rate tax relief?

    I'm new to self assessment, and completed my 2021/2022 assessment up to the final calculation section. I am an employee and pay tax under PAYE. I pay into a company stakeholder pension so 20% tax relief is payed into my pension. for 2022/2021, I should be able to claim a small amount of 40% tax relief which is not payed into my pension. In the self assessment tax return there was nowhere to enter my pension contribution details to allow 40% tax relief to be calculated. In the section "Did you make contributions towards a personal pension or retirement annuity? This does not include payments you make to your employer's pension scheme, which are deducted from your pay:" I answered no. Should I have answered yes as it is a stakeholder type pension run through a company scheme? Any help appreciated.
  • New to self assessment, PAYE Question.

    I have always been on PAYE however due to High Income Child Benefit Tax Charge I need to now fill in a self assessment which I am doing (as it transpires for 2021/2022 tax tear my pension contributions take me under the Child benefit tax charge threshold!). I have reached the self assessment final tax calculation section which tells me the tax I owe, and is stating it is payable by 31st Jan 2023. The tax will already have been payed under PAYE. Can I assume the PAYE will be taken into account in the next steps when submitting?
