Check carefully any new tax code notice you receive. click here I got one of these Notices a few weeks back and it ended with a "special note" to the effect that I had "had the benefit of too much tax free amount and therefore owe some tax. We work this out to be £700.13..." I 'phoned Inland Revenue straight away as my tax is PAYE. They checked and said don't worry it's just a computer error with our new system. I've since received an amended Notice with no arrears. However, I was charged £90 too much tax from my last pay cheque for which I'm still awaiting a refund.
I'm alarmed to hear this.... I've just received a significant refund relating to one company pension, but not the other.
I thought it strange at the time, I've been getting the same pension for awhile (the amount has changed a little bit over the years) and it was difficult to see where I should be due this amount of rebate. Ah well, they'll take it back when they feel like it I suppose.
Yes, but in truth I didn't look at it closely or think it very important so didn't compare etc. I didn't/couldn't/can't think anything was owed anyway, one way or the other... and I still don't think so. It will sort itself out I expect.
