I'm sorry to be thick - you can tell I lecture in health - not finance! At the moment I pay 431.89 into my pension each month - what would I have to increase that to to get the tax benefits? And would this be through AVRs?
It is paid directly from my wages into the teacher's pension. I think I can either pay more through AVCs (Prudential) or directly from the teacher's pensions scheme,
the 3926 is before any deductions, my pension contributions are £431.89 - deducted at source. I don't do any sort of self assessment tax thing, maybe I should?
