Hi I have some SAYE Emplyee shares that have matured over several years.. It states these need to be transferred with in 90 days to avoid paying Cgt.. If these are transferred after 90 days, what are the implications. Do you have to pay CGT when transferring to a ISA Thanks

Yes as you will need to see what the value is at date of transfer against the value at the date they matures.

Hi fridi77,
No gain or loss will arise until the shares are disposed of, so no tax is payable until that happens.
Thank you.

Thanks for confirming.. So i would only pay CG tax on these shares if i either I sold them or put then in a isa.. I have another question reagarding SIP, where im purchasing company company shares and after 5 years i f i was to sell the shares i would benefit from tax relief.. Do i have yo pay any Cgt on these shares Thanks

The guidance on tax and employee share schemes, advises if you keep them in the plan for five years, you will not pay Income Tax or National Insurance on their value.  

You will not pay Capital Gains Tax on shares you sell if you keep them in the plan, until you sell them. You can see guidance here:

Tax and Employee Share Schemes

Thank you.
