How is the company pension scheme taxed when it is paid out?

The tax office gives you a tax-free pension allowance plus a supplement. The amount depends on the year in which you first received the pension: in 2005 or before, the tax-free allowance was 40 percent of the pension payments or a maximum of 3,000 euros, the supplement 900 euros. Since 2006, both amounts have been reduced. When the pension started in 2021, the tax-free amount was only 15.2 percent or a maximum of 1,140 euros plus a supplement of 342 euros.
