Where an employee is provided with job- related living accommodation by reason of his employment there is a limit to the amount of taxable benefit arising under Part 3 Chapter 10 ITEPA 2003 on certain other benefits which he may also be provided with. The benefits are:
- heating, lighting and cleaning the premises
- repairs to the premises, their maintenance or decoration
- the provision of furniture, equipment or other items which are normal for domestic occupation.
The limit applying to the total of all such benefits is:
- 10 per cent of the net amount of the earnings from the employment (see EIM21722) less
- any contribution made by the director or employee to the person incurring the expenditure.
If the accommodation is provided for less than a year the 10 per cent limit of the net emoluments is reduced proportionately.
