According to the new rules, employee stock options will in the future in almost all cases be subject to taxation upon release. Free and blocked employee shares remain subject to taxation at grant.
Furthermore, the new legal provisions contain rules on the taxation of employee participation rights in the international context. These rules allow an appropriate taxation of employee participation rights which were earned in different states.
