Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 32: Permitted restrictions: provision for forfeiture

3046.This paragraph also supplements paragraph 30 and deals with the circumstances in which free or matching shares may be subject to provision for forfeiture.

3047.This paragraph derives from sub-paragraphs (1) to (5) of paragraph 65 of Schedule 8. (Paragraph 65(6) of Schedule 8 is a definition of “provision for forfeiture” applying for the purposes of the SIP code generally. This definition has now been moved to paragraph 99(1) of this present Schedule.)

3048.Sub-paragraph (1) combines sub-paragraph (1) and the first part of sub-paragraph (2) of paragraph 65 in Schedule 8. The words “in the following circumstances” have been removed.

3049.Sub-paragraph (2) gives a complete list of the events within paragraph 87(2) of Schedule 8. Although the amount of text is increased and there is duplication, the view has been taken that it is more helpful to set the relevant material out again than to refer users to section 498(2).

3050.In sub-paragraph (2), the reference at the beginning of this provision has been confined to sub-paragraph (1)(a). The reference can only be to paragraph (a) of sub-paragraph (1); and in the interests of clarity this cross-reference is more precise. Sub-paragraph (2)(d) reorganises the material in paragraph 87(3)(d) of Schedule 8.
