Section 167: Employees, directors and partners
555.This section defines how an individual can be connected with the issuing company as a result of a person being “an employee, director or partner”. It is based on section 291(2), (3) and (4) of ICTA.
556.Subsection (3) is based on section 291(4) of ICTA. It provides that an individual who is both a director and an employee of the issuing company is covered by subsection (1)(c) rather than subsection (1)(a) and so can benefit from the let-outs in sections 168 and 169. In such a case, references in sections 167 to 169 to an individual in his or her capacity as a director also includes the individual in his or her capacity as an employee. So, for example, in these cases any remuneration received as an employee is taken into account in section 169(2).
