Is my sip pension tax free


Ive been discharge medically and had my medical by VA and they awarded it as attruibtable to military service. So is my Sip tax free as I ve recieved a letter hm revenues and customes saying that they sont know what tax code to use and are setting it at 22%. I thought it was tax free or is this a mistake

Yes, your SIPP pension will still grow at a tax free rate, and your contributions will still benefit from basic rate tax relief, which is currently 22% and will be changed to 20% from 6 April 2008.

Hope that helps.

You can take 25% of your pre-pension fund tax free. Any subsequent post-pension income is taxable.

Edit: When you come to draw your pension benefits that is.
Assuming you mean SIPP - Self Invested Personal Pension then quaifying contributions will attract tax relief at the highest rate you pay, or if you are NOT a taxpayer you can still get basic rate relief on contributions mup to £3600 a year.

Incidentally, why do you have a SIPP?
