How much can I contribute into a SIPP?

Liberty doesn't stipulate a minimum SIPP contribution that must be paid to the scheme and there is no upper limit on the contributions that can be made, but there is a limit on the amount that is tax relievable. This is calculated against UK relevant earnings for the tax year the contribution is made, and is the greater of £3,600 or 100% of earnings in the tax year the contribution is paid.

These limits are gross, so what you can actually pay into the scheme is the greater of £2,880 and 80% of UK relevant earnings; Liberty then reclaim 20% tax from HMRC.

HMRC have introduced a cap on the amount that can be paid, known as the "Annual Allowance" which is currently set at £40,000. Where the total contributions from you and your employer over a 12-month period exceed this limit, a tax charge of 40% on the excess will be levied on the member and 45% if the client is an additional rate taxpayer.
