The release or writing off of any loan to an employee may be chargeable to tax (see EIM01490 and EIM21740 to EIM21748). It does not matter:
- for what purpose the loan was applied, or
- whether it was a cheap or interest-free loan.
Consult the guidance at EIM01490 and EIM21740 to EIM21748 in relation to all loans written off.
