What tax relief can I claim on my pension contributions?
You can claim tax relief on your pension contributions up to 40% of your net relevant earnings, depending on your age.
This means that for every €1 you pay, you could claim up to 40% back in tax relief assuming you are a higher rate tax payer (20 cent if you pay tax at the standard rate of income tax)
If you're in a company pension scheme you will normally receive full income tax relief at source on your pension contributions You should also receive PRSI relief on your pension contributions.
It should however be noted that tax relief is not automatically granted - you must satisfy the Revenue requirements. In certain circumstances your contributions may have to be restricted.
