3. Paying UK tax

You may have to pay UK tax on your State Pension if you live abroad but are classed as a UK resident for tax purposes. The amount you pay depends on your income.

You don’t usually pay UK tax on your State Pension if you’re not a UK resident, but you might pay tax in the country where you live.

If you live in a country without a ‘double taxation agreement’ with the UK, you may pay tax in both countries.
