*Martin v Revenue and Customs Commissioners

Income tax – Annual payment. The Upper Tribunal (Tax and Chancery Chamber) ruled on the liability of the taxpayer under his contract of employment to refund a proportion of a taxable signing bonus when he had given notice to resign prior to the end of the period for which the employee had committed to remain an employee. It held, inter alia, that a payment which had been made by an employee could be brought into account in determining taxable earnings only where the same payment, made prior to the Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003, would have been brought into account in determining the amount of taxable emoluments.
