Revenue hits the road to promote share ownership among employees

The Government is to continue pushing its all-employee share plan during an Inland Revenue roadshow intended to reach at least 30,000 companies.

The share plan is one of the central policies of the Chancellor Gordon Brown in his efforts to double the number of companies offering shares to their employees.

Stephen Timms, financial secretary, who will speak at the London roadshow on January 17, described the share plan as the ‘type of initiative we need to build a new modern and decent Britain’.

Roadshows began in December and are intended to help companies discover exactly what the Government’s employee share plan is about.

Responsibility for the programme is being shared by the IR and Proshare, a non-profit body dedicated to promoting ‘responsible share based investment’ and providing training courses for companies with share schemes.
