Are you eligible for extra tax relief?
There are two ways pension schemes can collect the tax relief from pension contributions, relief at source and net pay.
In relief at source schemes, all savers receive tax relief even if they don’t pay income tax. However, in net pay schemes there is no way for non-taxpayers to claim this relief.
Top-up for tax relief shortfall
Although the government is taking steps to address this, NOW: Pensions is keen to ensure that non-taxpayers don’t miss out. So, if you haven’t paid any tax on any of your UK earnings, we’ve committed to top up your pension pot by the amount of tax relief you’ve missed out on for the 2019/20 tax year.
To enable us to do this, you need to fill in a claim form, as well as give permission to the Inland Revenue (HMRC) to communicate your tax situation to us. Check back here for more details when the scheme re-opens later this year.
The window to claim for the 2018/19 tax year has now closed.
