Pursuant to changes in United Kingdom (“UK”) tax legislation, companies that sponsor or maintain any share-based incentive plans or schemes (tax-advantaged or non-tax-advantaged plans) in which UK employees participate must be registered and self-certified online with the UK tax authorities (HM Revenue & Customs). The registration deadline for all new and existing share plans is July 6, 2015. Failure to meet the deadline may result in losing tax advantages and/or incurring penalties. With respect to non-UK companies, any plans under which stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, or other equity awards are granted to UK employees should be registered.
