Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 246: Transport between work and home for disabled employees: general

997.This and the following section derive from ESC A59 and some practice as published in the Inland Revenue guidance manuals. Legislating the concession is a minor change to the law. See Change 48 in Annex 1.

998.The section provides a complete exemption from income tax where an employer provides help with home to work commuting for a disabled employee, except where a car is provided. No special mention of travelling to training is necessary because such travelling (except where it is in substance “ordinary commuting” eg when the training is held at the normal workplace) is exempt for everyone. Where that example involves a disabled employee this section provides an exemption.
