Pension Advice Allowance
HMRC has received queries from pension scheme administrators asking if their members can request the pension advice allowance from their scheme by email. The Registered Pension Schemes (Authorised Payments) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 say that the request must be made in writing by the member. HMRC confirmed that the member can make this request by email, however it’s down to the pension scheme administrator to decide if they will accept requests by email.
The pension scheme return and the SA970 tax return for trustees of registered pension schemes
HMRC has received a number of queries from pension scheme administrators confusing the pension scheme return (PSR) with the SA970 tax return for trustees of registered pension schemes.
These are 2 different information returns; the pension scheme return and the SA970 tax return for trustees of registered pension schemes. As pension scheme administrator/pension scheme trustee, may have to complete both the PSR and the SA970 tax return for trustees of registered pension schemes.
