Hello Wendy - Well I had access to The Connexion guide and used that to try to suss it all out.
The Connexion says do things a certain way but then in the following sentence says that some financial advisers don’t agree. So confusing!
In addition, the online forms are completely different to the paper ones. They don’t make life easy do they? I had to concentrate extremely hard to make sure I was doing it right. I don’t like the idea officialdom crashing down on me.
The only thing I found different to what I have done in the past is that the total of State Pension and Goverernment pension should go into Box AS on page three of 2024. Box TK has disappeared online as have other boxes so I can't really tell you what I ended up doing in relation to the paper forms.
I hope you manage to do yours now – it’s always a good thing to be out of the way.
If you want to PM me I can send you the notes I made for filling in the paper forms. Too long to post here.
