- A new non-statutory tax relief is available in 2003-2004 for adult placement carers, who care in their homes for vulnerable adults placed with them by local authorities or independent charities.
- The relief will allow carers of up to three adults to calcultate their profits on a fixed expenses basis, with the minimum of record keeping.
- There is also a favourable regime for respite, or short break, carers.
- A help sheet and fact sheet will be issued with 2003-04 self-assessment returns.
