Finance Bill — New Clause 14 — Report on Rate of Income Tax Applied to Incomes Over £150,000 — 1 Jul 2014 at 15:00

Rehman Chishti MP, Gillingham and Rainham voted against requiring a report on the additional rate of income tax; the rate which applies to income over £150,000 and which at the time of the vote was 45%.

The majority of MPs voted against requiring a report on the additional rate of income tax.

The additional rate of income tax applies to income over £150,000. In April 2013 it was reduced from 50% to 45% and the latter was the rate at the time of the vote.

MPs were considering the Finance Bill[1]. The proposed new clause which was rejected in this vote was titled Report on the additional rate of income tax and stated:

  • ‘(1) The Chancellor of the Exchequer shall, within three months of the passing of this Act, publish a report on the additional rate of income tax.
  • (2) The report shall set out the impact upon Exchequer receipts of setting the additional rate at 50 per cent in the tax year 2015-16.
  • (3) The report shall set out the impact of reducing the additional rate for 2013-14 on the amount of income tax paid by—
  • (a) all people who are liable for the additional rate;
  • (b) those with taxable incomes of over £250,000 per year; and
  • (c) those with taxable incomes of over £1,000,000 per year.
  • (4) The report shall set out the impact of the reduction in the additional rate for 2013-14 on the level of bonuses awarded in April 2013 to employees in the financial sector.”
