But for some reason - no longer? My P60 just shows my income for the year "net" of my pension contributions despite claiming to show my "total pay" for the year. Which is wrong since I know I earned more in that year than is shown on my P60. No wonder people get confused and don't know their true income nor more importantly, the advantages they may have from having a company pension scheme.
One of these many advantages of a company pension scheme is that it is usually paid out of your income before the taxman has a go at it and what this means is that your tax bill is slashed if you have a pension. What this also means to your wallet or your purse is that your pension is bumped up for free by the taxman!!! Result!
