For general information on the tax system in the UK, visit https://www.gov.uk/browse/tax.

Income tax on earnings, pensions, and benefits are taken from your wages, as are taxes to cover National Insurance if you're employed. If you are self-employed, you (or your accountant) will have to fill in a tax return and you will need to pay National Insurance contributions. For more information see HM Revenue and Customs (http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/selfemployed) on everything you need to know about registering to pay income tax.

The Tax Year in the UK runs from April 6 to April 5 the following year.
