Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

The basic rate of tax is 20%.

If your income is below £32,010 after personal allowances (tax year 2013-14), then the rate applied for income tax is 20%. Pension is regarded as taxable income and attracts the same rate of tax as earned income.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question. and other Tax Specialists are ready to help you
