What Is P50Z Form?

The P50Z form is designed to recover the tax paid on a "retirement" pension under certain circumstances. Previously, a first-time pension deduction was taxed at the Emergency Code 1 rate and you had to wait until the next tax year to repay this large sum. It is a new form designed to make this process easier and faster: your money must be returned within 30 working days of receiving the form from HMRC.
