Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Paragraph 52: Annual returns

3562.This paragraph sets out that a company must make a return to the Inland Revenue for any year during which its shares are subject to a qualifying option, prescribes when it should make the return and that the return should contain such information as the Inland Revenue may require. It derives from paragraph 65 of Schedule 14 to FA 2000.

3563.The time limit has been changed to “before 7 July” in line with the practice in this Act where it helps to refer to an exact date following the end of the tax year.

3564.As with paragraph 64 of Schedule 14 to FA 2000, there is a penalty for non-compliance with a notice issued under this paragraph. The consequential amendment to section 98 of TMA 1970 is contained in Schedule 6 to this Act.
