Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I am here to help you. I am reviewing your question and will respond to you shortly.
Many thanks

Thank you for your question.

Contributions you make into the SIP are what you would actually put in on regular basis.

You have a statement of account which should show your contributions and also any returns/growth on monies invested.

The gross interest and rental income is not classed as you making a pension contribution into the scheme.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.

I am currently completing my tax return and I need to know the figure to put in box 1 on page tr4. I have just looked at my Sipp statement and summarised it as follows I want to know what can I claim as my pension contribution.
Payments 40000
monthly payments 12*100=1200
Tax credit 12*25=300
Gross interest received 7.99
Income from property £7723.69
Property expenses £1801.14
Sundry purchase £800
Sipp provider fee 946.5.
So is it 40k+1500+gross interest+net property income I put in?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok so £40k + £1500 then

Thank you for your reply.

Please clarify if it is the fund that has received rental income and gross interest or is it personal

Many thanks

From 6 April 2014 the annual allowance for tax relief on pension savings in a registered pension scheme was reduced to £40,000. This includes contributions made by anyone else into your pension such as your employer. If your pension savings exceed this amount you may have to pay a tax charge and give details of this on a Self Assessment tax return.

I hope this is helpful and other Tax Specialists are ready to help you
