Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations.)
These Regulations further amend the Social Security (Contributions) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1979 (“the principal Regulations”).
Regulation 2 amends regulation 19(1) of the principal Regulations by excluding, from the computation of a person’s earnings for the purposes of earnings-related contributions, any gain from share options which is chargeable to tax by virtue of section 135 of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988.
These Regulations are made in consequence of a defect in the Social Security (1998 Order) (Commencement No. 1) Order (Northern Ireland) 1998 (S.R. 1998 No. 312 (C. 15)) in so far as it relates to the date on which the remainder of Article 47(1) of the Social Security (Northern Ireland) Order 1998 is brought into operation.
These Regulations make in relation to Northern Ireland only provision corresponding to provision contained in Regulations made by the Secretary of State for Social Security in relation to Great Britain and accordingly, by virtue of section 149(3) of, and paragraph 10 of Schedule 5 to, the Social Security Administration (Northern Ireland) Act 1992 (c. 8) are not subject to the requirement of section 149(2) of that Act for prior reference to the Social Security Advisory Committee.
