Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 237: Parking provision and expenses

971.This section derives from the provisions in sections 197A and 155(1A) of ICTA, which provide an exemption from tax in respect of the provision of car parking, and the equivalent provisions for motor cycle parking and facilities for parking bicycles in section 49(2) of FA 1999. It only applies to parking places at the place of work. In this section the defined expression “workplace” has been used instead of “place of work”. See Note 29 in Annex 2.

972.There are definitions of “motor cycle” and “cycle” in section 49(3) of FA 1999. But there is no definition of “car” in sections 155(1A) or 197A of ICTA. As the subject of the exemption is a parking space, definitions of what might be put in it did not appear to add anything, so they have not been reproduced here.
