Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 458: Chargeable benefits

1921.This section derives from the rather complex rules in section 80 of FA 1988 giving further conditions as to when a benefit is a chargeable benefit.

1922.Subsection (2) introduces the following three subsections. The approach adopted is to define what are chargeable benefits, replacing the approach in FA 1988 of saying that all benefits are chargeable benefits unless paragraphs (a) and (b) of section 80 apply. This makes the rules easier to understand.

1923.Subsection (3) derives from section 80(2)(a) of FA 1988.

1924.Subsection (4) derives from section 80(1A) of FA 1988.

1925.Subsection (5) introduces the conditions in subsection (6) which derive from section 80(3) of FA 1988. Subsection (6)(a) uses the new term “outside shareholders” which was first introduced in section 450.

1926.Subsection (7) contains two definitions which apply solely for the purposes of this section. The definition of “the company” is new and clarifies which company is being referred to in subsections (4) and (6). The other definition derives from section 87(1) of FA 1988.
