Specific deductions - employee benefit trusts: main uses
Some EBTs are set up to provide employees and directors with specific kinds of benefits such as:
- share-related benefits under employee share schemes set up to give employees a stake in the company or group by which they are employed - see BIM44515,
- pension and other benefits under retirement benefit schemes - see BIM44520,
- accident benefits - see BIM44525,
- healthcare benefits - see BIM44530.
EBTs may also be set up for more general purposes. Guidance on deductions for employers’ contributions to general-purpose EBTs is at BIM44535 onwards.
