Nhs employee and pensions section self assessment

Do all nhs staff with nhs pensions need to declare pensions on their self assessment every year?

Didn't find your answer?

I have recently acquired a doctor(consultant) employed full time by nhs as a client.

The client has only employment income along with a little bit of locum(self employed) income for 2019. I have requested P60, P11d and self employed income supporting documents along with pension contributions statement for 2019. 

My question is do I need to declare the pensions on self assessment although the pension is employer provided.

Someone who specialises in nhs tax shall be highly appreciated.

Much appreciated

It all comes down to how much was paid in as far as I'm aware. I'm no expert but the little I do know is, releif is given on contributions up to a set amount and shown on Payslips. If the amount paid goes above this amount then it is taxable and so declared on a SA. My advice is to find out the level of contribution, find out the threshold for which the releif stops and tax becomes due then you will know whether it needs declaring or not.
