You want to transform how your employees think about your company. But you don’t have time to become an expert in tax and the law governing company share schemes. Struggling with questions like these:

  • What happens if you give a team member share options and they leave?
  • How do you know which company share scheme is the most tax efficient given your team’s unique requirements?
  • What are the steps you need to take to keep your employee share scheme legally compliant through to exit?

The process of giving or receiving shares in a private limited company used to be extremely cumbersome, expensive and confusing!

Imagine if setting up an employee share incentive plan for your team was even easier than doing your payroll...

  • Your team members felt a stronger sense of ownership of the business the longer they stay with you.
  • You could minimise the tax liability for everyone involved.
  • You only had to pay a fraction of the cost spread over time.
  • Issuing shares and granting EMI share options could happen within a week.
  • You could confidently set conditions for your shares and manage the transactions yourself.
  • Board and shareholders commend you on how easy it is to work with you.
