PENSIONERS beware – I received my new tax coding notice for 2013-2014. For pensioners’ aged over 75 years no increase in the personal allowance, and with the retirement pension, including the increase from April set against this, it reduces your code number, thereby you pay more tax.

Having checked this with the Inland Revenue, it means paying more tax by £30 per year.
