What is the minimum and maximum amount I can deposit into a SIPP?

There is no minimum deposit, and you can invest everything you earn in a tax year into your pension without incurring a tax charge, up to a maximum of £40,000 for the current tax year. There is also currently a lifetime limit of £1 million.

If your total income in a tax year exceeds £150,000, then the £40,000 annual limit is reduced, ‘tapering off’ by £1 for every £2 of income earned over £150,000. The minimum annual allowance you can receive is £10,000, if your total taxable income is £210,000 or higher.1

There are other circumstances in which your annual limit may differ from the above. Contact James Hay for full details of taxes on your SIPP.
