EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)


Sections 1(6) and 257C(3) of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988 ("the Act") operate to provide that the Treasury shall by order made by statutory instrument before 6th April 2002 specify the amounts which by virtue of those sections shall, unless Parliament otherwise determines, be treated as specified for the year 2002-03.

This Order specifies the relevant amounts for the purposes of section 1(2) (starting rate and basic rate limits), section 257AA (children's tax credit) and section 265(1) (blind person's allowance) of the Act for the year 2002-03. The relevant amounts for the purposes of section 257 (personal allowances) and section 257A (married couple's allowances for those born before 6th April 1935) were specified by the Income Tax (Indexation) (No. 2) Order 2001 (S.I. 2001/3773).

The relevant amounts for the purposes of sections 1(2) (basic rate limit) and 265(1) (blind person's allowance) of the Act were specified for the year 2001-02 by the Income Tax (Indexation) Order 2001 (S.I. 2001/638).

The relevant amount for the purpose of section 1(2) (starting rate limit) of the Act was specified for the year 2001-02 by section 51 of the Finance Act 2001.

The relevant amount for the purpose of section 257AA(2) (children's tax credit) of the Act was specified for the year 2001-02 by section 52 of the Finance Act 2001.

Following the amendments to sections 1(4) and 257C(1) of the Act made by section 107(1) to (3) of the Finance Act 1993 and section 30(3) of the Finance Act 1999, the amounts in sections 1(2)(aa) and (b), 257AA(2) and 265(1) of the Act are increased by this Order in accordance with the percentage increase in the retail prices index for September 2001 over that for September 2000. The basic rate limit has been rounded up to the nearest Ј100 in accordance with section 1(4)(b) of the Act and, in the case of the other amounts, the amounts or increases have been rounded up to the nearest Ј10 in accordance with sections 1(4)(a) and 257C(1)(b) of the Act.

The "retail prices index" is defined in section 833(2) of the Act, as amended by paragraph 22 of Schedule 2 to the Transfer of Functions (Registration and Statistics) Order 1996 (S.I. 1996/273), as the "general index of retail prices (for all items) published by the Office for National Statistics". The retail prices index for September 2000 is 171.7 and for September 2001 is 174.6 (based on January 1987 as 100) (see Table 3.1 on page T28 of the November 2001 issue (No. 576) of Economic Trends, a National Statistics publication).
