Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 241: Incidental overnight expenses and benefits: overall exemption limit

984.The exemption for incidental overnight expenses in section 240 is a limited exemption. This section sets out the limit on the exemption and how it is applied and mainly derives from section 200A(2), (4) and (5) of ICTA. The cap on the exemption applies to the sum of the expenses and benefits exempted under section 240 and the amount exempted for non-cash vouchers and credit-tokens under section 268. The label “the exemption provisions total” in subsection (2) is used to refer to the aggregate total eligible for exemption under both of these sections.

985.Subsection (3) sets out “the permitted amount” for each qualifying period. The “permitted amount” is a new label for the amount described as the “authorised maximum” in section 200A(4) of ICTA.
