Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 20: Taxable earnings under this Chapter: introduction

82.This introductory section sets out how the Chapter deals with the calculation of taxable earnings in a year when the employee is resident, ordinarily resident or domiciled outside the United Kingdom, showing which section applies in which combination of circumstances. For example, an employee who is resident and ordinarily resident, but not domiciled, in the United Kingdom, can see from subsection (1)(a) and (b) that sections 21 and 22 are the sections to use in calculating taxable earnings for the year. The list in subsection (1) also makes it clear that there are separate rules in separate sections to deal with chargeable overseas earnings, UK-based earnings and foreign earnings. Each of these terms is defined in the section dealing with that kind of earnings. This introductory material is new.
