I'm back.

I'm assuming that you were born after 5 April 1948.

Your annual income is £13,035 (£2,397 state pension + £3,150 private pension + £7,488 private pension). You have a personal allowance of £10,600 so you should pay tax at 20% on £2,435, £487 per annum or £40.58 per month.

You should have the personal allowance against the larger pension. The state pension should be deducted from the personal allowance to leave you with net allowances of £8,203 (£10,600 - £2,397). Of those allowances £7,488 should ensure you pay no tax on your largest pension. The balance of your allowances of £715 should be transferred to the £3,150 pension (£262.51 x 12) so that you pay tax of £487 on £2,435.

Call the tax office on the number here to have your tax codes reviewed and changed if necessary. They will do that while you are on the phone to them.

I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
