How does Partnership & Matching work? Royal Mail is giving all eligible employees the opportunity to buy shares in Royal Mail plc on a monthly basis. The shares, known as ‘Partnership Shares’, will be purchased under the Royal Mail Share Incentive Plan (SIP).
When can I sell my Free Shares? Any SIP 2016 Free Shares you may have from 6 October 2019 (if the shares are awarded on 6 October 2016 as expected). Remember, if you sell your Free Shares between three and five years after you are given them, you may have to pay income tax and National Insurance on them.
Your Free Shares will be held in a tax-advantaged HMRC-approved SIP. Even if you stay in Royal Mail employment, this places some restrictions on your access to the Free Shares. The Free Shares will not be held in your own name but will be held by a Trustee on your behalf until you decide to take them out of the SIP.
