GMS and PMS general practices, sPMS and APMS contractors must declare the estimated pensionable incomes for their GPs and non-GP providers by March 1.

NHS Business Services Authority is reminding of the need to submit the form for 2016-17 by the end of this month. Guidance notes on the form also say that organisations that hold several GMS, PMS, or APMS contracts must complete the form in respect of each contract.

“If a GP Provider is involved in more than one surgery or performs ad hoc GP NHS work (ie OOHs, CCG) as an individual all their total GP income must be taken into account. GPs must pension all their eligible NHS GP income; they cannot ‘pick and mix’. However GPs who trade as limited company in respect of ad hoc work cannot superannuate this income.”

The form also includes the tiered contribution rates from April 2015 to March 2019, ranging from 5% for those with total pensionable income below £15,432 to 14.5% for those with total pensionable income of £111,377 and over.

“Practices do not need to declare the estimated pensionable income for any freelance GP locums they engage,” it adds.
