Any payments you have already made may be refunded by your employer, and you will not have become an active member of the workplace pension on this occasion.
The Government takes tax off your income when you earn above a certain amount. You can see this on your payslip. If you make contributions to your pension after tax has been deducted, basic rate tax relief will be added. This means some of the money that would have gone to the Government in the form of tax now goes into your pension pot instead.
If you’re a higher rate tax payer you will have to claim additional tax relief through your self-assessment form or by contacting your local tax office. If you make contributions before any tax is taken (gross), you will benefit immediately from tax relief at the highest rate you pay.
