EXPLANATORY NOTE

These Regulations prescribe any benefit which is provided under the Armed Forces and Reserve Forces (Compensation Scheme) Order 2005 (S.I 2005/439) as an excluded benefit under section 393B(3)(d) of the Income Tax Earnings and Pensions Act 2003 (c. 1) and hence not a relevant benefit for the purposes of Chapter 2 of Part 6 of that Act.
