Question asked by Alan Bennett 4 years ago


I am putting 320 pounds into an Aviva private pension fund every month.

Could you please tell me how to show this in my accounts?

Many thanks Alan

Hi Alan

Assuming you are still self employed and not a Ltd Company, the contributions are not a business expense and so you put them to your drawings account.

Hi Does anyone know how to show this in the accounts if you ARE a limited company and it is the directors private pension?

Thanks, Gemma

Hi Gemma,

I would suggest with regards to directors private pensions to speak to your accountant.

All the best,


Hi Mohamed.

I need to know where to post it in the meantime. What is the norm?



Hi Gemma,

You can create a money out for the pension payment, but unfortunately, as to which account code to use you would need to ask an accountant.

All the best,


Brilliant advise - just changed two years worth of monthly payments to my drawings account!
