Re: Double Pension question

My UK state pension has been converted to CHF and paid into my Swiss bank account monthly for the last 7 years without problem.

For Swiss taxes I simply add the amounts up and put the total on the Swiss tax form, which has never been questioned.

Every couple of year the UK pension people write and ask if I'm still alive. My Swiss bank (ZKB) stamps the form free of charge.

If you pay tax in the UK, it may be advantageous to keep the UK pension there and use your UK tax free allowance...

(Added thought) - if you have been self employed here, the UK state pension pay you more. No idea why and I'm not going to ask!
