Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 450: Chargeable events

1902.This section defines what is and is not a chargeable event and derives from section 78(2), (5), (6) and (7) of FA 1988. It will be noted that a new label “outside shareholders” is used as shorthand for the persons within section 78(6)(a) of FA 1988 and the term is defined in section 469.

1903.The words in section 78(6)(c) of FA 1988 “which is not a dependent subsidiary” have been omitted in new subsection (4)(c) on the grounds that they are unnecessary. It is already clear from section 78(1)(b) of FA 1988 that no charge arises if the company is a dependent subsidiary.

1904.Subsection (6) derives from section 78(7) of FA 1988. The term “are references to such” has been used instead of “include” to make better sense of the additional words “or in any other way”.
