This section has no associated Policy Notes

36.—(1) The scheme manager, if satisfied that it is reasonable for residential accommodation to be provided to a person (P) by P’s employer (E) in connection with P’s employment, may decide that the money value of residential benefits in kind forms part of P’s pensionable earnings from—

(a)the first day of P’s employment; or

(b)if later, the first day on which residential accommodation is provided to P.

(2) If the money value of the residential accommodation exceeds 1/6th of the aggregate of the amounts mentioned in regulation 33(2)(a) to (d), the excess does not form part of P’s pensionable earnings.

(3) The scheme manager may revoke a decision that the money value of residential benefits in kind forms part of P’s pensionable earnings if E does not—

(a)carry out the reviews in accordance with regulation 35; or

(b)inform the scheme manager of the results of those reviews within a reasonable time.

(4) If paragraph (3) applies, the scheme manager must—

(a)calculate the amount attributable to the overpayment of contributions (“the amount”); and

(b)repay that amount to E together with interest applied in accordance with paragraph (6).

(5) The amount is the difference between—

(a)the sum of the amount of members’ contributions, any faster accrual contributions and any buy-out contributions E deducted from P’s pensionable earnings(1) during the period in which the residential benefits in kind formed part of P’s pensionable earnings; and

(b)the sum of the amount of members’ contributions, any faster accrual contributions and any buy-out contributions which E would have deducted from P’s pensionable earnings during that period had the residential benefits in kind not formed part of P’s pensionable earnings.

(6) Interest is applied at the rate of 3% each year, compounded with yearly rests—

(a)from the first day of the financial year following the year in which the contributions were first deducted;

(b)until the day on which the amount attributable to the overpayment of contributions is repaid.

(1)

Contributions are deducted under Part 9.
