Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 379: Calculating the deduction

1663.This section sets out the amount of the deduction which may be allowed from the earnings attributable to the eligible period. Subsection (1) derives from section 192A(1) of ICTA.

1664.Subsection (2) derives from the rule in paragraph 3(3) Schedule 12 to ICTA concerning earnings for a period of leave immediately following an eligible period. That rule says that the emoluments for such a period of leave may be taken as attributable to the qualifying period, but only to the extent that this would not mean having to treat any emoluments for one tax year as belonging to a different tax year. Essentially this rule allows emoluments for a period of leave to be attributed to the qualifying period to the extent that they are emoluments for the tax year during which the qualifying period ends.

1665.Subsection (3) makes the deduction subject to the limit contained in the following section.
