What is the annual allowance?

The annual allowance is the maximum pension contribution that will receive tax relief in the tax year.

The annual allowance in tax year 2020/21 is £40,000. For higher earners this may be reduced by something called the tapered annual allowance (TAA).

In certain circumstances it may be possible to carry forward unused pension annual allowance from previous tax years. The rules are extremely complicated and may depend upon something called pension input periods
