QCA Response to HM Treasury - New employee shareholding vehicle

10th October 2014

Our Share Schemes Expert Group contributed to our response to HM Treasury's consultation 'New employee shareholding vehicle'. While we generally support the idea of a simplified employee shareholding vehicle for use by employers as part of the operation and implementation of employee share plans, we noted our concern that commercial restrictions may mean that the arrangements are not attractive to small and mid-size quoted companies notwithstanding the tax benefits. We supported that the vehicle should be made more attractive to be likely to achieve its aims, and considered that it may be simpler and more effective to deal with the underlying tax issues relating to EBTs in general rather than creating a new vehicle.
