Swiss Age Pension

I receive an age pension from Switzerland in the UK. Does anyone know if I have to pay tax on this in the UK, or does Switzerland automatically advise HMRC to deduct the tax if applicable.

Re: Swiss Age Pension

Pensions are paid gross without tax being deducted. You do not state if you complete a Swiss tax declaration. If you do the tax on the Swiss pension could be paid in CH and your tax free allowance here used.

If you do not pay tax in CH, then it should be added to your UK income and declared on your UK tax form...
