We know how stakeholding can motivate key staff, what the tax efficient options are and how to implement the best solutions for your business.
The design and implementation of commercially-effective and tax-efficient incentive schemes can be hugely powerful for our clients in helping to lock in key members of staff, recruit additional talent and motivate those individuals to achieve more for the business.
Aside from things like performance-related pay and flexible benefits arrangements, a considerable amount of our work revolves around ways to bring key employees and recruits into stakeholding, without handing them a very unwelcome (and counter-productive) tax charge for the privilege.
Design-solutions which this team typically introduces to our clients include:
- the superbly flexible and effective Enterprise Management Incentives (EMI) option scheme
- the supporting Company Share Option Plan (CSOP)
- unapproved share option schemes
- growth share schemes
- partly paid share arrangements
- employee benefit trust structures
And combinations of the different arrangements, all provided to help you drive the business forward.
"We follow a simple principle laid out by our founders: It’s not about keeping up. It’s about staying ahead."
