Section 511: PAYE deductions to be made by trustees on shares ceasing to be subject to plan

2080.This section is relevant where any plan shares cease to be subject to the plan and as a result there is an amount that counts as employment income of the participant. In such a case if either there is no employer company or the Inland Revenue are of the opinion that a PAYE deduction is impracticable, and direct that this section is to apply, the trustees have to account for the PAYE as if the participant were a former employee of the trustees. The practical effect of this is that the trustees have to deduct income tax at the basic rate.

2081.This section is the second of three that derive from paragraph 95 of Schedule 8 to FA 2000. This section derives from sub-paragraphs (7) and (8) of paragraph 95.
