Exemption for amounts which would otherwise be deductible: Dispensations
S65 ITEPA 2003
For periods prior to 6 April 2016 see eim30050.
From 6 April 2016 the legislation for dispensations at s65 ITEPA 2003 is being repealed and dispensations will cease to exist. Employers wishing to pay or reimburse employees expenses after 5 April 2016 will be able to do so without deducting tax or NICs from those payments where the expenses would qualify for a deduction and meet the conditions for payment.
The legislation will, however, still allow for retrospective revocation of dispensations for periods prior to 6 April 2016 where the employer has failed during that period to adhere to the terms of their dispensation and this is not established until after 6 April 2016. See eim30095
