A beginner’s guide to claiming back the money:


When you pay into a Personal or Stakeholder pension you get tax relief at the normal rate of income tax - 22% (i.e. for every £78 pension contribution on your pay slip, £100 goes into your pension – so the tax bods give you back 22% of the full amount).* If earn more than £33,301 you pay the higher rate of income tax (40%), but you still only automatically get the 22% tax relief.* However, you are entitled to claim the additional 18% on your pension payments.


All you need to do is send your P60 (that you’ll get at the end of this month) and a covering letter detailing your gross pension contributions for the year (i.e. what’s going into your pension, rather than what’s coming off your pay slip) to the following address. Then they’ll calculate what you are owed.


HM Revenue and Customs

Birmingham Office

City Centre House

hello oblivion


do you know if the procedure set out in your post still apply? i sent my info to that birmingham address and have had no response. have read elsewhere that you need to fill in a tax return to claim pension tax relief but not sure whether this is still correct.


thanks very much
