Pension Contributions – Tax Relief For Business Owners

Profits from Private Limited companies attract Corporation Tax, currently at 19% at the time of writing. Business expenditure such as staff wages, supplies, bills etc are deductible from gross profits before the Corporation Tax is calculated.

Pension contributions made by the Limited company are also seen as a business expense and therefore deducted from the gross profit before tax is calculated, thereby saving corporation tax on the amount of pension contribution.
