A consultation on whether companies with non tax-advantaged share schemes require the continued availability of a National Insurance Contribution (NIC) election.
A NIC election is the means of legally transferring to the employee the Employer’s Class 1 NIC obligation on the occasion of chargeable events in connection with employment-related securities options, and with restricted or convertible employment-related securities. This consultation is designed to gather views and evidence from companies with nontax-advantaged share schemes about whether there is a need for the continued availability of a NIC election. NIC agreements will continue to be available.
The consultation is particularly relevant for accounting and legal advisers of companies which offer non tax-advantaged share schemes, particularly multinational companies with UK employees.
