Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraphs 67 to 70

3602.These paragraphs amend sections 588 to 589B of ICTA. These sections provided for an exemption from tax under Schedule E for retraining courses and outplacement counselling, which is rewritten at sections 310 to 312 in this Act. It is rewritten there with several minor changes (including removal of the requirement that the services in question should be provided in the United Kingdom). See Change 72 in Annex 1.

3603.Sections 588 to  589B also provide for a deduction under Schedule D if the expenses incurred would not otherwise be deductible (sections 588(3) and 589A(8)). They also provide for the expenses to be allowed as expenses of an investment company on a similar basis to allowing for a Schedule D deduction.

3604.Paragraphs 67 to 69 amend those parts of section 588 to 589B that deal with the deduction for Schedule D/management expenses to tie in to the exemptions now contained in sections 310 to 312 of this Act.

3605.This approach allows those parts of sections 588 to 589B which deal with the Schedule E exemptions to appear only in this Act and not in ICTA.
