Share valuation: HMRC announces closure of PTVC and PAYE healthcheck service
Due to lack of resources, HMRC will no longer be agreeing (post transaction) shares value for non-tax advantaged share incentive arrangements (e.g. growth shares) and are reviewing whether to continue agreeing (pre transaction) share valuations for tax advantaged arrangements (e.g EMI).
The withdrawal of this service is likely to have a significant impact on companies operating non-tax advantaged employee share incentive arrangements (such as growth shares) as the ability to seek informal HMRC approval of the share valuation gave companies and participants comfort regarding their taxation. If you are in the process of implementing such arrangements, it would be best to send valuations to HMRC as soon as possible.
