Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 633: Voluntary annual payments

2505.This section derives from sections 58(2) and 133(1) of ICTA.

2506.Section 58 of ICTA imposes a charge on voluntary pensions and voluntary annual payments paid by or on behalf of a person outside the United Kingdom. Section 133 of ICTA imposes a charge on voluntary pensions and voluntary annual payments paid by or on behalf of a person in the United Kingdom. The charges on voluntary pensions have been rewritten in Chapters 3 and 4. These are the Chapters that deal with United Kingdom and foreign pensions generally. As voluntary annual payments are not pensions it is not appropriate to include them in Chapters that deal with pensions. So the charges on voluntary annual payments have been rewritten in a separate Chapter.

2507.The conditions for the section to apply are very similar to those that apply to foreign voluntary pensions. Those conditions have been rewritten in section 574 and are repeated in this section. The only difference is in subsection (4), which deals specifically with foreign voluntary annual payments. Subsection (4) restricts the charge to payments made to persons resident in the United Kingdom. This restriction is not needed in section 574 because the same effect is achieved by section 573.
