EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Qualifying Care Relief (Specified Care Schemes) Order 2011 (S.I. 2011/712) (“the 2011 Order”).

This Order has effect for the tax year 2017-2018 and subsequent years, authority for this retrospective effect is provided by section 806A(5) of the Income (Trading and Other Income) Act 2005.

An individual who provides foster care, shared lives care or both is entitled to qualifying care relief from income tax. Section 806A of the Income (Trading and Other Income) Act 2005 sets out the conditions that an individual must meet in order to provide shared lives care. One of these conditions is that the shared lives care is provided under a “specified social care scheme”. The 2011 Order (as amended by S.I. 2012/791) specifies four types of scheme: adult placement schemes, kinship care schemes, staying put care schemes and parent and child schemes.

Article 2 of this Order amends the 2011 Order in relation to adult placement schemes to update the reference to replacement Regulations in England and permit payment for care provided under a scheme to be made by the scheme or the person carrying on the scheme provided the payments are not made in a fiduciary or representative capacity and the scheme does not permit the carer to receive other payments for providing the care.

A Tax Information and Impact Note covering this instrument was published on 22 November 2017 and is available on the website at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/tax-information-and-impact-notes-tiins. It remains an accurate summary of the impacts that apply to this instrument.
