We claim tax relief monthly, we have no control of the above timescales which are dictated by HMRC.

Note that the relevant rate of tax relief depends on whether you are a Scottish taxpayer, Welsh taxpayer or taxpayer in the rest of the United Kingdom (UK):

  • Scottish basic rate for Scottish taxpayers
  • Welsh basic rate for Welsh taxpayers
  • Basic rate for taxpayers in the rest of the UK

If you are eligible for further tax relief on your personal contributions, you should reclaim that extra element via your self assessment tax return or by contacting HMRC.

If you have any questions about this, please contact our SIPP accounts team on 01228 538 988 or email
