Withdrawal and grandfathering of Extra-Statutory Concession BIM 66301: Sub-postmasters

HM Revenue and Customs is allowing a ‘grandfathering’ provision until 5 April 2019 for the Extra-Statutory Concession on the remuneration of sub-postmasters.



The Extra Statutory Concession on the remuneration of sub-postmasters, which has been withdrawn from 6 April 2017, set out at BIM 66301 provided that where a retail trade is carried on from the same premises as the sub-post office and a sub-postmaster receives remuneration as an office holder from the Post Office, this income could be treated as a trade receipt.

HM Revenue and Customs will allow the ‘grandfathering’ provision, for current users until 5 April 2019. No new use of the concession is possible.
