Hi. My name is*****'m looking at your question now and will post my answer or ask for more information here in a short while.

Is this an annual allowance charge or a lifetime allowance charge? I suspect the former.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I think it may be both

Thanks. My understanding is that the lifetime allowance charge would not normally arise until you draw on the fund.

Use the additional information pages SA101, boxes 7 to 18 as appropriate on page Ai4 here. Tell HMRC in box 19 of the SA100 tax return here that you want the pension scheme to pay the charge and to defer it.

If you look under "Paying the annual allowance charge from your pension savings" heading here, it refers you to PTM056300 which gives you more information.

I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
