Tax treatment of seafarers: bedding and protective clothing provided for trawler crews
Sections 336 and 367 ITEPA 2003
At a number of ports it is the practice for owners to supply trawler crews, other than mates and skippers, with bedding and/or protective clothing free of charge. In these cases any agreed flat- rate expenses deduction must be restricted, see EIM32710.
Restrict the current year but do not seek any retrospective adjustments.
