The #1 equity management platform

Vestd is the UK’s first, most advanced and only regulated digital share scheme platform. Here’s what makes it stand out...

Guided setup & lifetime support

Equity can be complex, so we provide expert guidance from start to finish. We help hundreds of UK SMEs design tax-efficient schemes every week.

Full Companies House integration

Vestd is the only platform with full, two-way Companies House integration, which means you can avoid a ton of paperwork. Everything is done digitally.

No need to involve lawyers & accountants

We have an in-house team of valuations analysts and provide legal docs as part of our service. You don’t need to ask anyone else for help (or pay third party fees).

Schemes for your team, advisors & NEDs

We offer various scheme types depending on who you want to reward, including Real Shares, EMI & Unapproved Options, Growth Shares and Agile Partnerships™.

Keep track of who owns what

Get a 100% accurate view of your ownership structure via our real time and historic cap tables. You can model future investment or exit scenarios too.

The original EMI scheme platform

More than 13,000 SMEs have launched an EMI options scheme. The benefits are fantastic, for you and your employees:

  • Recipients pay just 10% CGT on any gains at the time of sale
  • The scheme can be conditional (you set the terms)
  • You can offset the entire costs

New: Agile Partnerships™

Our new framework determines equity rewards based on agreed performance milestones. Equity is released in a way that is proportionate to what people contribute. Agile Partnerships™ are perfect for:

  • Early-stage startups (e.g. co-founders & key hires)
  • Restructuring & incentivising senior teams
  • Transitioning shareholders out of the business

New feature: Increase employee engagement via the new option holder dashboards

Get on the fast track

Set up a 1-2-1 discovery call with one of our equity specialists. We will explore:

  • Your company structure
  • The best scheme types for your needs
  • How to protect existing shareholders
  • Setting conditions and milestones
  • The costs and tax implications

We’ll also answer any questions you have about sharing ownership.

Figure out when would be a good time to talk and schedule a video meeting (or contact us to request a phone call).

The ongoing management of EMI options is a real challenge. It’s great that Vestd have made it possible for the individual employees to be able to view what options they have been awarded via the portal anytime.
