Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 39: Duties in UK merely incidental to duties outside UK

164.This section sets out that if the duties of the employment are performed outside the United Kingdom but there are some incidental duties performed in the United Kingdom, then those incidental duties are to be treated as being performed outside the United Kingdom. This section does not apply to employees claiming a deduction from seafarer’s earnings, for which a separate rule appears in the Chapter dealing with that deduction. This section derives from section 132(2) and (3) of ICTA.
