    Do pension contributions affect the tax you pay (Tax Return)

    Do pension contributions affect the tax you pay (Tax Return) 8th Dec 11 at 7:28 AM
    I seem to remember a question on the tax return about pension contributions (other than those taken directly by the employer).

    Do pension contributions in any way affect the tax you owe?

    I'm assuming the question is more so HMRC can check that they haven't paid more contributions towards your pension than you have paid in tax in that year - though just wanted to check what I was letting myself into before starting a pension!

    (Basic rate tax payer btw)

    Can anyone advise?
