  • What happens if you give a team member shares and they leave?
  • How do you know which scheme is the most tax efficient given your team's unique requirements?
  • Are you sure your accountant can navigate such a complex area, or will you have to hire a lawyer too?

Imagine if you could start distributing shares to your team within a week

  • Your team members feel a stronger sense of ownership of the business the longer they stay with you.
  • You can minimise the tax liability for everyone involved.
  • You only had to pay a fraction of the cost spread over time.
