Just looking for some advice as this is the first year I have had to deal with this. My income was above £50k for 2020/2021 and we receive the child benefit payment for one child. I have completed my return but the calculation is incorrect. Firstly the tax code is standard £12,500 but mine is S1425L - I would have at least expected the tax code to be correct with RTI.
Secondly, there is no box to enter pension payments deducted from net salary (just the standard tax return box for private pension contributions). The guidance on the child benefit tax charge says income should be stated after pension deductions from net salary. If I enter these deductions in the standard box for private pension would that be ok or not?
Any advice would be most welcome.
