Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 204: Cost of the benefit: basic rule

810.This section derives from section 156(2) of ICTA. The benefits within this Chapter can be provided in different ways. The “cost of the benefit” is the basic amount and this section sets out what that is.

811.The words “(including a proper proportion of any expense relating partly to provision of the benefit and partly to other matters)” provide for apportionment of the cost of the benefit in appropriate circumstances. A case before the Special Commissioners reported recently has made that possibility clear.
