Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
Could you please supply me with a little more detail please? From whom and why are shares being awarded?
You may well be right as it is normal for such share issues to be disposed of on day of vesting thus there is no capital gain and hence no Capital Gains Tax (CGT) liability.
As a result of the LTIP distribution in cash you will be liable to Income Tax (IT) on the amount received at you marginal rate of tax and in addition employees' Natuionl Insurance (NI) contributions will be levied also. You could mitigate the IT charges by making contributions to a pension scheme providing you do not breach the annual contribution limit, including employer's contributions, of 40K
I am so sorry to have to rain on your parade.
Indeed! To furthermore annoy you the PAYE system will asume that you will receive this bonus monthly in the future and over tax you for the rest of the year although as time progresses these deduction will steadity reduce and you should be tax neutral by the end on the tax year. If not you can use your P60 to get the figures and ask your tax office for a refund of overpaid tax.
Unfortunately, not a thing; the PAYE system is designed for the vast majority of workers who receive the same basic plus additions like overtime or piece work payments which ripple along quite happily within the system. What PAYE does not absorb easily is large emoluments received in one account period.
Please be so kind as to rate me before you leave the Just Answer site.
