We have extensive experience in advising upon and implementing:
- Enterprise Management Incentives (“EMI”)
- Approved Company Share Option Plans (“CSOP”)
- Sharesave (“SAYE”)
- Share Incentive Plans (“SIP/AESOP”)
These arrangements are approved by HMRC and have a number of generous associated tax reliefs and therefore continue to be popular with both employers and employees. If the statutory qualifying criteria are met, these approved arrangements can be an extremely effective longer-term alternative to cash incentives which aligns the interests and behaviours of employees with the other stakeholders of a company.
There are tax favoured share options arrangements for all sizes of companies, from start-ups to FTSE listed household names, and we will work with you in order to establish the type of plan which best suits your business needs and objectives. We then design and implement a scheme for your business and workforce.
