Paragraph 15: Meaning of “associate”: trustees of employee benefit trust
3287.This paragraph supplements paragraph 14 of this Schedule and contains provisions that apply where an individual is interested as a beneficiary of an employment benefit trust. The paragraph derives from paragraph 40 of Schedule 9 to ICTA.
3288.This paragraph has counterparts in Schedules 2, 4 and 5 to this Act. Chapter 11 of Part 7 (Supplementary provisions) defines the expression “employee benefit trust”, and deals with further matters arising when payments from employee benefit trusts are made. There are references to provisions in that Chapter in the later provisions of this paragraph.
3289.Sub-paragraph (3) is new. It is modelled on EMI and SIP and amplifies the approach in paragraph 40(1) of Schedule 9 to ICTA, now reflected in sub-paragraph (2) of this paragraph. This ensures that the test in sub-paragraph (2) works satisfactorily.
