About TAX relief

What is Tax relief:

Amounts that can be deducted from a persons annual income to reduce the amount on which tax is paid. For instance, a pension contribution of £1,000 could be deducted from taxable income of £20,000 to reduce the taxable element to £19,000.


The government encourages you to save for your retirement by giving you tax relief on pension contributions. Tax relief reduces your tax bill or increases your pension fund.
