How come I can’t transfer the full 50% of my pension with my spouse? I only got a lower percentage for pension splitting.

It may not be the most tax-efficient manner. Keep in mind that your spouse may have other taxable income and by claiming the full 50% of your pension, it may cost your spouse more money in the long run. The tax software does the calculations to determine the most optimal tax advantage for you as a couple.
