Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 274: Meaning of “the limitation day”

1119.This section defines “the limitation day”, which rewrites the idea labelled “the relevant day” in ICTA, using a reference to a new concept, “the employment change”. The section derives from paragraph 6 of Schedule 11A to ICTA.

1120.Subsection (1) defines “the limitation day”, subject to subsection (2).

1121.Subsection (2) gives scope for the Inland Revenue to extend the period before the limitation day, if it seems reasonable to do so. The reference to “Inland Revenue” reflects the practice whereby the Board of Inland Revenue delegates the initial decision on this matter to the Officer in Charge of the local office concerned. See Change 158 in Annex 1.
