What happens about tax?
In most circumstances you won’t have to pay income tax or National Insurance on your shares when you buy them, even though you will have been able to buy the shares for 20% less than the share price on the stock market when the scheme launched. However, you may have to pay capital gains tax (CGT) on any gain made between the option price and the market price when you sell the shares. Every person has a yearly CGT allowance. You will not have to pay CGT on any gains you make below your yearly allowance. For 2014-2015, the CGT allowance is £11,000.

So if they drop below 360p, then we get them for the value they are trading at time of purchase?

So if you’ve saved £360 over the savings term, you’ll be buying 100 shares at £3.60 each. That figure of £3.60 is fixed!

I,ll probably buy the shares at 3.60 and just sit on them for a while. Has anyone been written to since the scheme matured ?
