One of the letters I got yesterday, referred to in the previous post, was from a pension provider certifying how much I was paid from 01/01/2019 to 31/12/2019. At first glance it looked perfect, exactly what I had asked for. It was on official headed notepaper, it had my name and my payroll reference. It had a clear simple statement saying the period, the amount I was paid and that no UK tax was deducted. It had the name of the issuing official, his position and it was signed by that person, not pp. Unfortunately, on closer inspection, it turned out that he had added up the payments made from April to December, leaving out the January, February and March payments.
I rest my case.
