Points to be aware of:

  • Minimum account opening limits: Lump sum £1,000 and monthly savings £50.
  • Minimum top up limits: Lump sum £1,000 and monthly savings £50.
  • The maximum you can pay into your pension each tax year is £40,000, including employer contributions (this figure does not include any transfers you wish to make from other pension providers; there is no limit to how much you can transfer). Exceed this limit and you could end up paying up to 45% tax.
  • Unused annual allowances from the previous three tax years can be carried forward to this tax year without incurring tax (even if it exceeds £40,000).
  • Unlike personal contributions, employer contributions do not attract tax relief.
  • Contributions from your limited company (which are considered employer contributions) can usually be offset as a business expense which will reduce your potential corporation tax liability.
  • Read more on all the above in the pension tax factsheet.

Acceptable payment methods

  • Cheque, Bank transfer or Direct Debit for regular savings
