Pension contributions which qualify for the 2019/20 tax year need to be in the pension trustee bank account by 5pm on Friday 3 April 2020 at the latest. The funds must show as received in the scheme bank account by close of business on that date, at the latest.
The supporting pension contribution forms must also be received by us by 5pm on Friday 3 April 2020 at the latest. These can be sent in via post, email or fax.
Should we receive either the funds or the supporting forms after this deadline, the contribution will not qualify for this current tax year.
