Thanks Sam, I thought that might be the case but wanted to double check. My salary is actually £99,450 (although £994,500 would be nice :)).
That all makes sense.
My salary /15 increased to £130k plus £14k of benefits. If I pay more into my pension scheme would this enable me to claim any of the personal allowance back, or would the level of salary negate this? In which case would it be just claiming back the relief higher rate of tax?
