star this property answer text The government offers four tax advantaged employee share schemes: Enterprise Management Incentives, Company Share Option Plan, Save As You Earn and Share Incentive Plan. These enable employers and their employees to mutually benefit from generous Income Tax, National Insurance, and Capital Gains Tax reliefs when they participate. The government announced at Budget 2017 that employees on the Save As You Earn scheme who take maternity or parental leave will be able to pause their contributions for up to 12 months, from 6 months previously. There are no other changes currently planned, but the government keeps all areas of the tax system under review. more like this

From April 2013, business rates moved from being a centrally redistributed function to one where the local government sector retains a percentage of what they collect. This change aims to increase the proportion of local authority spend that is financed by locally retained income, over which authorities will have more control. As part of the 2015 Spending Review, this is set to increase to 100% rate retention by 2020.</p>
