Social Security Contributions (Transfer of Functions, etc.) Act 1999

Section 8: decisions

177.Section 8 provides for the Inland Revenue to take decisions on specified contributions, SSP and SMP matters. The list of decisions for the Inland Revenue set out in paragraphs (a) to (l) of subsection (1) comprises much of the Secretary of State’s existing jurisdiction under section 17(1) of SSAA 1992 together with some further matters. The terminology is taken from that section and from the SSA.

178.Section 8(1)(m) is a general provision along the lines of paragraph 29 Schedule 3 Part II SSA ("power to prescribe other decisions"). It allows the Inland Revenue to set out in regulations other contributions decisions. For example, this will allow the Inland Revenue officers to take responsibility for decisions that might follow from future changes to the legislation on contributions.
