The article focuses on the changes made by the pension industry to pension tax relief in Great Britain. The author states that those people who have an income of 150,000 pounds or more in the applicable tax year are the most likely who will be affected by the changes. She adds that a special annual allowance is the maximum amount of new pension payments in which people can make and attract full higher-rate tax relief.
