Compensation & Benefits: Online filing of share schemes returns for year ended 5 April 2010 - deadline 6 July 2010

March 2010

Forms 30, 34, 35, 39, 40 & 42 are now available online to download from HMRC’s website

HMRC reminder that the relevant form must be completed and returned to the Employee Shares & Securities Unit before 7 July following the end of the tax year for which it was issued.

However, the commentary confirms that if the form was issued on or after 8 June following the end of the year for which it was issued, it must be returned within 30 days from the date of issue shown on the form.


Employers and companies operating approved or unapproved schemes should now be collating the relevant information to enable them to complete the forms in good time before the deadline.
