Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 214: Scholarships: cost of the benefit

844.This section derives from SE 30003 in the Inland Revenue Schedule E Manual. It provides a special rule for determining the cost of the benefit of an employment-related scholarship which is provided from a trust fund. Incorporating this practice is a minor change to the law. See Change 40 in Annex 1. The application of the normal rule for the cost of the benefit in section 204 of this Act could result in the whole of the amount of capital paid into such a trust fund being taken into account. This section prevents that and provides that the cost of the benefit is to be the total of payments made to the scholar.
