PAYE: employment-related securities: post- acquisition benefits from securities
Part 7 Chapter 4 ITEPA 2003
Part 7 Chapter 4 ITEPA 2003 was fundamentally amended by Schedule 22 FA 2003 with effect from 16 April 2003. It provides for a charge to income tax in certain cases if in connection with the disposal of employment-related securities a person receives a benefit by virtue of the ownership of employment-related securities.
The Share Schemes Manual will be amended to provide detailed guidance in due course.
Section 698 ITEPA 2003 was fundamentally amended by Schedule 22 FA 2003 with effect from 1 September 2003. Where an amount counts as employment income of an employee by reason of Part 7 Chapter 4, then by virtue of Section 698 the employer is required to operate PAYE on the amount that counts as employment income if the relevant employment-related securities are readily convertible assets (see EIM12400).
The employer is not required to operate PAYE on an amount that counts as employment income of an employee by reason of Part 7 Chapter 4 if the relevant event occurs on a day before 1 September 2003.
