Section 536: Exemption for certain miscellaneous income
1617.This section provides an exemption for certain categories of miscellaneous income from income tax, provided the income is applied to charitable purposes. It is based on section 505(1) and (1AA) of ICTA.
1618.The precise terms of the section draw significantly on the consequential amendments made by ITTOIA.
1619.In subsection (1)(b), the reference to Act includes references to Acts of the Scottish Parliament and Northern Ireland legislation. See Change 152 in Annex 1, section 1018 and the commentary on that section.
1620.Subsection (3)(a) and (b) specify that royalties and other income from intellectual property and income from relevant telecommunication rights, where such income is not taxable as profits of a trade, are eligible for exemption. This is a change from the source legislation in that such income was only exempt if it came within the definition of annual payments. See Change 96 in Annex 1.
