The cheek of MS

edited April 1 in Match Day Travel
Something I picked up from work.
Under the ICTA988 legislation we are taxed on the cost of any benefits we receive from work.
When football directors attend matches they are deemed to receive a benefit in kind equal to the cost of the match ticket and hospitality they receive.
According to the latest update from HMRC that I receive at work our good friend MS claimed that the anger of the Charlton fans directed at him meant that attending matches no longer constituted a benefit and that he should be able to claim his costs to travel to matches as a tax allowable cost.
Lord Chief Justice Sir Harold Cripps QC agreed with him and he has had his tax bill reduced by thousands of pounds.
Outrageous IMHO.
