Thank you for your question.

It looks like you have income from more than one source including untaxed income e.g. state pension.

You had a tax code BR which meant your income/pension under PAYE was taxed at basic rate of 20%. Your tax code has been changed so you have tax free income of £431 before your income/pension under PAYE would have tax deducted.

Have you filed a tax return recently?

My aim is to give you a professional service. I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
