Personal Allowance 2021/22 – don’t lose it!
For every £2 that your adjusted net income exceeds £100,000 the £12,570 personal allowance is reduced by £1. Pension contributions and Gift Aid can help to reduce adjusted net income and save tax at an effective rate of 60%. The restriction applies between £100,000 and £125,140 adjusted net income.
Consider a salary sacrifice scheme
Another way that you could avoid the personal allowance trap and also reduce income tax and national insurance would be to agree with your employer to sacrifice some of your salary in exchange for a tax free, or low tax benefits in kind. Common examples would be additional pension contributions or providing an electric company car in exchange for a lower salary.
We can assist you in setting up a salary sacrifice arrangement correctly as it will involve amending the contract of employment. You may be doing this anyway as many employers are moving to “hybrid” working and changing the days that staff are required to work in the office.
