529I Repayment of appropriate tax


No repayment of appropriate tax withheld may be made to a specified person except where a determination is made by Revenue in respect of allowable expenditure, which was not reimbursed or is not reimbursable, which was incurred in the provision of artistic services. An appeal against a Revenue determination may be made to the Appeal Commissioners.


(1a) Subject to paragraph (d) of this section, no repayment of appropriate tax withheld may be made to a specified person.

(1b) The amount of a relevant payment shall be deemed to be income of the specified person and chargeable to income tax under Case IV of Schedule D.

(1c) Section 59 shall apply as if a reference to appropriate tax deductible under this Chapter were contained in paragraph (a) of that section.

(1d) A specified person shall be entitled in computing chargeable income to a deduction in respect of expenditure incurred in the provision of artistic services where the expenditure is not reimbursed or is not reimbursable. Where expenditure is incurred a claim may be made to the Revenue Commissioners. On receipt of a claim a determination will be made on an amount that would not have been disallowed under section 81. A repayment of the amount of appropriate tax charged on the amount determined shall be made to the specified person and a notification shall issue to the specified person stating the amount of the repayment. A claim may not be made under this section in respect of expenditure incurred and already allowed under section 529C(2).
