Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 5

3582.This paragraph amends section 18 of ICTA so as to re-establish the boundary between income charged under this Act and income charged under ICTA.

3583.In section 18(1)(b) of ICTA the reference to Schedule E is replaced by a reference to the three types of income charged under this Act. This will include some pension and social security income that is charged under Schedule D by ICTA. The amendment ensures that the income is charged only under this Act. A similar amendment is made to the definition of Case VI.

3584.In the definition of Case V the phrase “income consisting of emoluments of any office or employment” is replaced by a general reference to “employment income”. Although the latter term covers both the charge on emoluments taxed by paragraph 1 of section 19(1) of ICTA and the free-standing Schedule E charges taxed by paragraph 5 of section 19(1), the amendment respects the principle that Schedule D is the residual Schedule. Despite using the broader term, Schedule D Case V still covers all of a person’s income from abroad except income that is specifically chargeable under other provisions.
