Finance Act 2014

Background Note

3.Section 114(3) ITEPA 2003 provides that Chapter 6 of Part 3 of ITEPA 2003 (Taxable Benefits: Cars, Vans and related benefits) does not apply if the cash equivalent of the benefit of a company car or van made available for private use constitutes earnings from the employment by virtue of any other provision. This could allow an individual to pay less tax on their car or van benefit than the Government originally intended and have a negative impact on Exchequer revenue.

4.From 6 April 2014, section 114(3) ITEPA 2003 will be repealed for the tax year 2014-15 and subsequent tax years. This supports the Government’s policy of the full amount of car or van benefit being subject to tax and protects Exchequer revenue. Protection from double taxation is already provided by other provisions in the Act.
