Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003

Section 507: Charge on disposal of beneficial interest during holding period

2067.This section is the last of three that impose tax charges connected with shares ceasing to be subject to SIPs. It applies if a participant disposes of the beneficial interest in free or matching shares during the holding period in breach of the obligations imposed by paragraph 36(1)(b) of Schedule 2 to this Act.

2068.This section derives from paragraph 82(1) of Schedule 8 to FA 2000. (Paragraph 82(2) of Schedule 8 to FA 2000 was repealed by paragraph 5 of Schedule 13 to FA 2001.) Subsection (1)(a) contains additional wording to emphasise that this section applies if free or matching shares cease to be subject to the plan during the holding period applying to those shares.

2069.As in the case of other sections in this Chapter, the year that is “the relevant tax year” is specified. As in the case of those other sections, the point at which the tax charge arises is not specified in Schedule 8 to FA 2000; the point is dealt with explicitly in subsection (3). See Note 3(B) in Annex 2.
