Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 695: Credit-tokens

2822.This section provides for PAYE to be operated on certain credit-tokens used by an employee. It derives from section 203H of ICTA and regulations.

2823.Subsection (2) derives from paragraph 4 of SI 1994 No 1212. It excludes from the scope of the section credit-tokens used to obtain money to meet expenses which would only be PAYE income because of section 70.

2824.As with vouchers, there is also no requirement to operate PAYE on credit-tokens which are subject to a dispensation (see section 96) as Chapter 4 of Part 3 then does not apply to give rise to an amount treated as earnings under section 94.

2825.“Readily convertible asset” is defined in section 702. “Credit-token” is defined in section 721(1).
