Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 463: Disposals of shares to connected persons etc. ignored

1933.This section derives from section 83(2) and (3) of FA 1988. It is reasonably plain what section 83(2) of FA 1988 is trying to do, namely to ignore disposals which are not at arm’s length or are to a connected party so that the employee is deemed to retain the beneficial interest. However it is not clear whether the wording of that subsection achieves that result where the shares were originally issued to a connected party and so have already been subject to the deeming provision in section 83(1) of FA 1988. This has been made clear in this section by specifying that the employee retains the interest. It is a minor change to the law. See Change 114 in Annex 1.
