Employers Scheme – Your employer takes your pension contribution from your salary before calculating tax so you receive full tax relief at source – but you still pay NICs on the full amount.
Private Pension – You make payments from your salary to a private pension plan – you are still taxed on the pension payments and pay NICs but can receive tax relief automatically at basic rate into your pension by the pension provider. You will need to claim any higher rate relief via a tax return or by adjusting your tax code.
