Informal consultation issued December 2010

Regulations expected October 2011  

The Government is considering introducing provisions to allow a participating employer in a multi-employer scheme to cease employing an active member without triggering a section 75 debt if a group guarantee is put in place, subject to various safeguards.

The Government envisages that group guarantees would be used on corporate restructurings, although it does not propose to exclude the sale of companies outside the group.
