Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 25: Requirements as to contributions to savings schemes

3311.This paragraph derives from paragraph 24 of Schedule 9 to ICTA. It supplements the previous paragraph by ensuring that the contributions under the CCS scheme will result in a repayment that will meet the option price. It also sets a maximum and caps a minimum for monthly contributions.

3312.“The option price” has been defined as “the amount payable” to reflect the overall cost of the acquisition of shares on exercise of the option. A further clarification has been introduced, the reference to “the maximum number of shares” that can be acquired under the option, to identify the option price more precisely.
