What is the tapered annual allowance?

The tapered annual allowance was introduced in April 2016 and reduces the annual allowance available to high earners.

In tax year 2023/24, anyone with income above £260,000 may be affected.  The minimum amount which the annual allowance can be reduced to is £10,000.

The actual rules involved are particularly complicated and expert advice is required to avoid being liable to an annual allowance tax charge.
