second income

Postby colinz on Sat Dec 08, 2012 12:26 pm

As an expatriate I currently have a tax code of NT and do not pay uk income tax. I have recently taken a pension from a previous employer and the tax office has given me a code of D0 on the pension and taking 40% of the pension is this correct? Is there anyway that I can get NT status on the pension too?

UK pensions are subject to UK tax.

Hello colinz,

As pointed out by pawncob, UK Pensions are subject to UK tax but as an Expatriate you will still be entitled to the UK personal allowance.

If tax on your pension is being deducted at the rate of 40% and it is your only source of income from the UK then it is very likely that you will have overpaid in tax.

After performing the tax calculation at the end of the tax year any overpayment can be claimed back from HMRC.

Happy to help if required so if you need any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.
Kind regards,

After a few months with HMRC they now agree that my main salary is NT and that as pointed out the pension I am drawing is my only income in the UK so I can have a proper tax code as opposed to the D0. My question is, I have over paid for the last few months and doubt very much it would be paid back automatically, what form do I need to fill to reclaim the over payment?

I assume you have checked the relevant Double Tax Treaty for pension taxability?

Apart from pensions for government officials etc, a UK pension is often taxable in the resident State - NOT the UK.

The relevant Treaty, if any, needs to be consulted to ascertain the position.

So where do you reside?
