Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 146: Cars that run on road fuel gas

559.This section provides for a deduction to be made from the price of the car at Step 1 of the calculation of the cash equivalent in section 121(1) of this Act if the car has been manufactured to run on road fuel gas and is not a bi-fuel car. The deduction that can be made is the amount that is reasonably attributable to the car being manufactured to run on road fuel gas, rather than only on petrol. The section derives from section 168AB(2) and (4) of ICTA.

560.Subsection (1) states when the section applies.

561.Subsection (2) provides for the appropriate deduction from the price arrived at after Step 1 of the calculation in section 121(1). This is a slight variation on the calculation used in the source legislation. See Change 26 in Annex 1.
