This is my first post on AccountingWeb so apologies if this is the not right forum to ask the question.
I have a query re. my wife's pension contributions for the current tax year.
She was employed from April 2021 until recently as a Teacher and had a Total Taxable Pay to Date of approx. 18k
The Tax Paid to Date is £2.5k.
During this employment, she contributed £2k to TPS; The Employer Pension to Date is £44.5k
She has since then contributed £16k into a SIPP, to which a £4k tax relief has been added.
My questions are:
1] Are her relevant earnings to date £18k or £20k (18+2))?
2] Is her personal pension contribution to date £22k (2k + 16k+4k) or some other figure?
2] Is the additional allowance available to her for the current year £13.5k (40k - 4.5k -2k - 16k - 4k) or some other number?
3] She will be working from next month in our Ltd Co. Can the Ltd Co. make further contributions into her SIPP up to the limit of £40k regardless of her monthly salary?
Many thanks for any suggestions/thoughts you may have.
