Reliefs: employee-ownership trusts: transitional provisions
The rules governing the relief are slightly different for disposals that took place on or after 6 April 2014 but before 26 June 2014. This is because some significant amendments to the legislation as originally published were not published until the latter date. The points below summarise the differences and refer to the guidance which applies where relief is claimed in connection with disposals during this period.
CG67822 The settlement has to meet the ‘all-employee benefit requirement’ at the time of the disposal but not for the remainder of the year in which it took place, that is the year ended 5 April 2015.
CG67823 The settlement has to meet the ‘controlling interest requirement’ only at the end of the tax year in which the disposal took place, that is at 5 April 2015.
CG67855 The value of the ‘participator fraction’ during the period beginning with the disposal and ending at the end of the tax year in which the disposal took place is not relevant in determining if the ‘limited participation requirement’ is met.
CG67860 The special rules regarding ‘disqualifying events’ in the tax year next following a disposal by P of shares in C do not apply.
CG67866 The rules specifying the consequences of a ‘disqualifying event’ in the tax year next following a deemed disposal by trustees under TCGA92/S71 do not apply. There are no special, alternative rules analogous to those at [CG67861](https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals/capital-gains-manual/cg67861), which apply in these circumstances.
