Have to disagree with Jon on this,

Reg 36 provides for earnings to be calculated disregarding:

(a) any amount [u:273b3bad4d]deducted[/u:273b3bad4d] from those earnings by way of–
(i) income tax;
(ii) primary Class 1 contributions under the Act;

I do not think that the payments can fall to be considered as deduction.

I suspect that this is an error in the drafting of the Regs but I do not think it leaves any real room to manouvere.
