Younger readers will probably be shocked at the thought that the Government might ask anybody to pay income tax at a rate above 40%. Yet when Harold Wilson was prime minister in the 1960s, a 60% higher rate of tax was the norm, while it was reputedly possible to pay a 98% rate on investment income and, in the right (or possibly wrong) circumstances, a rate in excess of 100%.

In April 2006 the pension scheme rules were simplified, with the same rules applying to both personal pension and occupational pension schemes. Previously, different rules applied to each type of scheme, with the rules for personal pension scheme savings being particularly complicated. The amount of tax relief depended on a person's age and earnings, and there was a six year carry forward of unused relief.
