Finance Act 2014


1.This section amends the Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act (ITEPA) 2003 to add in a new section, section 689A. This section applies where oil and gas workers on the UK Continental Shelf are supplied by a non-UK based employer. It provides that a UK-based associate company of the overseas employer, or in the absence of an associate, the oil field licensee, will be responsible for operating PAYE. Where PAYE is paid and accounted for by the offshore employer, HMRC may issue a certificate to confirm this. Whilst the certificate is in force, it relieves the oil field licensee of their obligation to operate PAYE.
