Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 285: Replacement of domestic goods

1166.This section brings together in one section the provisions relating to expenses and benefits connected with replacing domestic goods. The heading in the source legislation, “duplicate expenses”, does not really describe what this provision is about. The new heading is more informative. The section derives from paragraphs 14 (expenses) and 22 (benefits) of Schedule 11A to ICTA.

1167.Subsection (1) describes the circumstances in which the section operates. Under paragraph 14(2) of Schedule 11A if an employee sells any of the domestic goods replaced by the new goods covered by paragraph 14(1) of Schedule 11A, the sale proceeds have to be deducted from the amount that qualifies under that paragraph. This subsection does not reproduce that requirement to deduct the sale proceeds of replaced domestic goods. See Change 65 in Annex 1.

1168.Subsection (2) broadens the scope of who can have an interest in the new and/or former residence(s), other than or as well as the employee, in similar terms to those applying to an interest in the new residence as covered in section 277(1), dealt with in paragraph 1129.
