Income tax: Kwasi Kwarteng provides pension saving ‘incentive’ through 45p cut | Personal Finance | Finance

This is the case if they are subject to the tapered annual allowance – a limit on the amount of contributions paid to, or benefits accrued in, a pension before the person has to pay tax.

Since April 6, 2020, it only affects those who meet both of the following income requirements:

  • A threshold income above £200,000
  • An adjusted income above £240,000.

Those with adjusted income over £240,000 can have their standard annual allowance reduced from £40,000 on a graduated scale until at salaries £312,000 or more the limit can fall to just £4,000.  

Mr Smith suggested the changes to income tax may alter how people make their contributions in the future.
