Employee Share Schemes Bill set to become law

Employee Share Schemes Bill looks set to become law in the autumn after
receiving its third reading in the House of Commons last week.

Bill will incentivise private companies to introduce employee share ownership
and also provide tax relief for Share Incentive Schemes.

of the advisers on the Bill, Graeme Nuttall, managing director of Equity
Incentives Ltd, said: "The Government has demonstrated its continued
commitment to encouraging employee share ownership through its support for this

looks as though it is only congestion in the parliamentary timetable, rather
than political objections, that could now prevent this Bill from making it onto
the Statute book."
