Section 461: Related acquisitions of additional shares

1929.This section derives from section 82 (1) and (2) of FA 1988 and concerns the treatment of additional shares received by the employee in respect of an original holding which had been acquired by virtue of the employment. The effect is to treat the new shares as within the Chapter and as having been acquired at the same time as the original shares.

1930.An award of additional shares may give rise to a chargeable benefit within section 457. This section makes it clear that the timing rule in section 82(2)(b) of FA 1988 does not affect the date on which the charge under section 457 is taken. See Change 116 in Annex 1.
