Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 35: Time when scheme-related employment ends

3331.This derives from paragraph 23 of Schedule 9 to ICTA. The import of the definition of associated company derives from section 187(2) of ICTA.

3332.This is in part an anti-avoidance provision and complex in application. The position has been clarified: an employee is not regarded as leaving the group scheme until that employee has left any associated company of the scheme organiser.

3333.As regards sub-paragraph (3), the reference in paragraph 23 of Schedule 9 to ICTA to a company under the grantor’s control has been omitted, because such a company is also an “associated company”.

3334.There is a new sub-paragraph (5), to make it quite clear that paragraph 32 of this Schedule, rather than the rules in this paragraph, govern the situation after the death of an option holder.
