Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 383: Place of performance of incidental duties

1676.This section derives from paragraph 6 of Schedule 12 to ICTA and sets out the rules (which apply only to the FED), regarding the performance of duties which are incidental to the main duties of the employment.

1677.Under section 132(2) of ICTA, if the duties of an employment are mainly performed outside the United Kingdom, any duties incidental to those performed in the United Kingdom are treated as being performed outside the United Kingdom. However, this rule does not apply when deciding whether or not a seafarer is absent from the United Kingdom to determine entitlement to the FED. This exception to the section 132(2) rule is in section 132(3) and has been rewritten in subsection (4) of this section.
