Hello all, i am about to complete my self assessment for 21-22, and would have a small tax payment to make. I have noted that top up payments made to a pension plan could offset that liability.

So the question is, can I make a top up payment to my pension plan today ( Jan -23 ) and claim that as being part of my 21-22 self assessment due by 31/1/23 ? Or is it simply that if I make that payment today, I can only use it for tax relief against 22-23 or future self assessments ?

Timing is the issue and I’ve been unable to find clear guidance in what I have read. I’d very much appreciate any good advice on this subject. Many thanks
