Entrepreneurs relief - a possible glitch

Under the draft legislation there appears to be a problem for shareholders in companies or groups participating in joint ventures. Activity carried on with a view to acquiring an interest of 10% or more in a joint venture company is trading activity under the legislation but actually holding shares in a joint venture company appears not to be. This means that a company or group can fail the trading tests if the shareholding in the joint venture is substantial in relation to the overall activity.

If this were to be the case, entrepreneurs relief would not be available.
