Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 81: Application for approval

3189.This paragraph deals with the mechanics of the application for approval of a SIP. The paragraph derives from paragraph 4 of Schedule 8.

3190.This paragraph makes two changes to the law. The first change is in sub-paragraph (2), where it is provided that the application must be in writing. This requirement is not contained in Schedule 8, but there is such a requirement for the SAYE and CSOP schemes. The second change is in sub-paragraph (3), which is new. It provides that once the Inland Revenue have decided whether or not to approve the plan, they must give notice of their decision to the company. See Change 164 in Annex 1.
