Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 69: Cash dividends where no requirement to reinvest

3154.This paragraph sets out the provision that a SIP must make for cash dividends that are not required to be reinvested under the plan. The dividends must be paid over to participants as soon as practicable.

3155.This paragraph derives from paragraph 53(3) of Schedule 8; but that sub-paragraph is now dealt with separately to take account of the circumstances in which it applies (see paragraph 63(3) of this Schedule).

3156.The material in paragraph 53(3) of Schedule 8 has been reorganised and divided into two sub-paragraphs to make it easier to understand. The definition of “distributable cash dividends” is new.
