Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 66: Acquisition of dividend shares

3147.This paragraph sets out the conditions relating to the acquisition of dividend shares that a SIP must meet. The acquisition must take place on “the acquisition date”. The paragraph derives from sub-paragraphs (1) to (4) of paragraph 56 of Schedule 8. (Paragraph 56(5) of Schedule 8 is the source of paragraph 62(5) of this Schedule.)

3148.The definition of “the acquisition date” has now been placed at the end of this paragraph (in sub-paragraph (4)); and there have been changes in the detail of the wording at various places in this paragraph.

3149.The second sentence of paragraph 56(2) of Schedule 8 has been omitted. This sentence merely stated a proposition that was true in any case, and has accordingly been removed on the basis that it is unnecessary.
