Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 202: Excluded benefits

805.This section derives from section 154(1)(b) and part of section 154(2) of ICTA. It clarifies what is meant by “the cost of the benefit is not (apart from this section) chargeable to tax as his income.” Benefits which are within, or specifically excepted from, other chapters of the benefits code are not within this Chapter. This section does not exclude benefits which are earnings within section 62 of this Act. That is not necessary because section 64 of this Act applies to prevent any element of double charge. See Change 15 in Annex 1. The identification of excluded benefits is explained more fully in Note 25 in Annex 2. The benefit of certain transport vouchers in section 86 of this Act is not excluded from this Chapter because Chapter 4 of Part 3 provides an exemption only for the lower paid.
