Submissions to amend the government’s very odd approach to employee share plan taxation

The Australian government responded to universal concerns on their intention to tax employee equity plans up-front, announced on budget night, with an amended approach. These amendments result in an approach that can be described as still very odd.

Friday 12 June 2009 was the closing date for submissions to the Australian Treasury on the government’s proposed amendments to employee share plan taxation. The draft on which comments were sought was released just 7 days prior to the closing date for submissions.

Guerdon Associates’ submission identified very significant adverse consequences of the proposed legislation.
