Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 13: Material Interest: options and interests in SIPs

3281.This paragraph extends the previous paragraph; shares subject to an option are to be counted for the material interest test. This derives from paragraph 38 of Schedule 9 to ICTA. Under sub-paragraph (3) if the shares of an option holder which have not yet been issued are taken into account the total share capital is similarly increased.

3282.A disregard has been introduced for the unappropriated shares held by trustees of a SIP trust on the lines of the EMI code and similar to that contained in paragraph 39 of Schedule 9 to ICTA for approved profit sharing (APS) schemes. See Change 167 in Annex 1.

3283.Paragraph 39 of Schedule 9 to ICTA (the disregard for shares held in APS schemes) has not been reproduced in this Schedule. It is contained in Part 8 of Schedule 7 (Transitionals and savings).
