Current income as an employee or office-holder

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

38.—(1) The non-resident parent’s current income as an employee or office-holder is income of a kind that would be taxable earnings within the meaning of section 10(2) of ITEPA and is to be calculated as follows.

(2) As regards any part of the non-resident parent’s income that comprises salary, wages or other amounts paid periodically—

(a)if it appears to the Secretary of State that the non-resident parent is (or is to be) paid a regular amount according to a settled pattern that is likely to continue for the foreseeable future, that part of the non-resident parent’s income is to be calculated as the weekly equivalent of that amount; and

(b)if sub-paragraph (a) does not apply (for example where the non-resident parent is a seasonal worker or has working hours that follow an irregular pattern) that part of the non-resident parent’s income is to be calculated as the weekly average of the amounts paid over such period preceding the effective date of the relevant calculation decision as appears to the Secretary of State to be appropriate.

(3) Where the income from the non-resident parent’s present employment or office has, during the past 12 months, included bonus or commission or other amounts paid separately from, or in relation to a longer period than, the amounts referred to in paragraph (2), the amount of that income is to be calculated by aggregating those payments, dividing by 365 and multiplying by 7.

(4) Where the earnings from the non-resident parent’s present employment or office have, in the past 12 months, included amounts treated as earnings under Chapters 2 to 11 of Part 3 of ITEPA (the benefits code) the non-resident parent’s current income is to be taken to include the amount of those benefits as last obtained by HMRC divided by 365 and multiplied by 7.

(5) Where the non-resident parent’s employer makes deductions of relievable pension contributions from the payments referred to in paragraph (2) or (3) the amount of those payments is to be calculated after those deductions.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
