Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 45: Correction of notice by Inland Revenue

3545.This paragraph gives the Inland Revenue authority to amend a notice given to it under the preceding paragraph. This paragraph also sets out how and when such a correction may be made. It derives from paragraph 3 of Schedule 14 to FA 2000.

3546.This paragraph sets out the time within which the Inland Revenue may amend a notice and the time within which the employer company may reject such a correction. The source legislation gives these time limits as “nine months after the day on which the notice…was given” and “three months from the date of issue of the notice of correction”. The time limit in each case starts running from the day after the day mentioned. Sub-paragraph (4) make this clearer for the time limit for the employer company by referring to “3 months after the date of issue of the notice”.

3547.The wording in sub-paragraph (4) of paragraph 3 of Schedule 14 to FA 2000 states that the employer company can give notice rejecting a correction without saying to whom the notice should be given. A reference to the Inland Revenue has been added in sub-paragraph (4). See Change 178 in Annex 1.
