Yes that confirms what I have been saying about Government Pensions, i.e. civil service/military pensions are taxed at source.

Stuart,

Understand from your last post,that your research shows that Fire service pensions, even though classified as local authority(government pensions), are non government?
Can I ask where you found that info so we can use it if we decide to make a claim.
Cheers
Fi

hi fi ! was trying to explain that there appears to be two types of fire brigrade pensions. one governmnet and one not.
go to www.hmrc.gov.uk
in the search box type - intm343040
click on - dt claims and applications...types of income and annuities.
it gives a list there including fire brigade.
if you cant find it get beck to me and i will try and find an easier way of getting there.

Thanks Stuart great help.
It seems even though Erics pension is classed as non government..yippee.. Turkey is one of the countries that excluded :(
Only option is to become a national at a later date.
Many thanks
