UK announces new tax on equity compensation to global employees

UK recently published a draft legislation that the tax treatment of all employment related securities be the same for all globally mobile employees. Accordingly a portion of any equity award paid to such employees should be apportioned to UK income based on the number of UK days in such financial year.

This legislation can create additional costs to the internationally mobile employee and should be reviewed carefully.
