HMRC - Your Tax Office

Whilst this may not be a priority, it may be a good idea, especaily if you are expecting a tax rebate. Remember it is your responsibility to inform them of your change of address.  Most people will assume their employer will do this. So when you move tell HMRC as soon as possible at  www.hmrc.gov.uk or contact your local tax office.
