Pension tax relief calculator

Calculate how much tax relief you can get on your pension in the 2021-22 tax year and see how it compares to 2020-21 and 2019-20.

When you save into a pension, the government tops up your contributions as a reward for saving towards your retirement. It does this in the form of pension tax relief. The amount you get is equivalent to the rate of income tax you pay. 

We've explained how this works in detail in our tax relief on pension contributions guide. 

To use this calculator, simply add your annual income and how much you are paying into your pension. We'll break down exactly how much tax relief will be added. 

This calculator has been updated for the 2021-22 tax year. Use the 'Tax year' drop down to see how much you'll get from 6 April 2021.
