2019/20 Pensions annual allowance charge compensation policy: third window for GP applications in England opens

GPs in England applying to the 2019/20 Pension Annual Allowance Charge Compensation Scheme must have their application form endorsed by Primary Care Support England (PCSE) before it can be processed by the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA).

You can find a copy of the form on the NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSEI) website.

PCSE's third GP application window opened on the 13 December 2021 and closes on the 11 February 2022. This is the final application window for GPs in England to submit their Pensions Annual Allowance Compensation Scheme application forms to PCSE for processing ahead of the scheme application deadline on 31 March 2022.

If you are a GP in England and you intend to apply to the Scheme, please ensure you apply before the 11 February 2022 deadline.

If you’re a GP in England and you have any queries about when you can apply and how your application form will be endorsed by PCSE, please visit the PCSE website for more information or contact the PCSE Customer Support Centre.

If you are not a GP, or you are a GP in Wales, please follow the instructions on the application form and ensure your form is submitted to the NHSBSA before the 31 March 2022 deadline.

To apply for the 2019/20 Pension Annual Allowance Charge Compensation Scheme, you need to use scheme pays to pay your tax charge. To use scheme pays you must make an application using the scheme pays election (SPE2) form available via our annual allowance webpage. If you've already submitted a scheme pays election (SPE2) for 2019/20 you will not need to submit a new scheme pays election.
