Disguised Remuneration & Employee Ownership Trusts Explained
Employee Ownership Trusts (EOTs) have become comparatively attractive since the replacement of entrepreneur’s relief with the much less generous business asset disposal relief.
This virtual classroom session explores both the advantages and the all-important tax and non-tax considerations involved in setting them up, in particular the principles of remuneration planning and disguised remuneration.
The modern remuneration planning is at a centre of a paradox. It is desirable that remuneration is deferred until remuneration committees can assess the medium and longer-term impact that executives make.
On the other hand, the government brought in a decade ago the rules on disguised remuneration which seek to bring into immediate charge to tax certain deferrals.
