    It's probably gross for tax. What is the difference due to? If the pre-tax deduction is a pension contribution for example it will definitely be the gross for tax figure. I'm not sure if there are any pre-tax deductions that wouldn't be deducted for tax credit purposes but if you let us know what the deduction is I'm sure someone will be able to confirm one way or the other.

    the gross pay for tax TD seems to be gross pay less employee pension contributions.

    If that's the case the starting point will be gross pay for tax. There might be other amounts that you are allowed to deduct from this figure. If he has any other pension schemes that he pays into from his post tax income he will deduct the gross amount of those contributions too. Take a look at the guidance and see if there is anything other payments that you need to take into account.

    If there are other deductions make sure you explain why the figure you're reporting isn't the same as his employer has reported. They assume there is a problem if it's a different figure and you haven't explained and it might take longer to sort out the renewal.
