*The Spring Budget in March 2023 made changes which are not covered in this document. From 6 April 2023, the standard annual allowance increased from £40,000 to £60,000 and the taper will apply if both adjusted income is greater than £260,000 and threshold income greater than £200,000. 
The minimum annual allowance for someone affected by the taper is now £10,000 and the lifetime allowance will be removed from 6 April 2024.
