Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 12: Meaning of “material interest”

3279.The definition of material interest is imported here from section 187(3) of ICTA. The capped percentage is applied to both the straightforward control through share capital and other more indirect routes. The layout mirrors the similar rules in the new (FA 2000) schemes.

3280.Unlike in the new (FA 2000) schemes this provision applies to close companies only, see paragraph 11(1). Redundant wording in section 187(3) of ICTA has been removed (the reference to “where the company is a close company”).
