1639.This section and the following three sections are based on sections 68A to 68B of ICTA which were inserted into ICTA by ITEPA. They are part of the SIPs code. See also the commentary on the SIPs legislation in Chapter 3 of Part 4 of this Act.
1640.This section introduces the special rules about charges to tax on SIP dividends.
1641.Subsection (2) provides that sections 406 to 408 apply only if the participant has benefited from the tax advantages of an approved SIP. Those tax advantages will only apply to an individual who is chargeable to tax under Part 2 of ITEPA in respect of eligible employment, or, in the case of shares awarded before ITEPA came into force, under Schedule E.
