Discover the best scheme type
We will outline the four most common ways of distributing shares, and the pros and cons of each one (e.g. tax-efficiency).
Understand the process
There are more than 20 steps involved in setting up a share scheme. We’ll explain what you need to do, and how to avoid the complexity and hassle by using our platform.
Figure out the costs
And not just for set up, because it’s important to know what you’re in for over the lifetime of a scheme.
Learn how to stay compliant
Around 50% of all existing EMI schemes are not compliant. Every year non-compliance costs shareholders many millions upon exit. We’ll help you avoid the mother of all headaches when it is time to exit.

Our customers say good things...
Vestd has been a brilliant tool for us. We recently closed a $1.1m seed round, and knowing that all the information is stored and processed in one place has been a massive time-saver. The calculators are handy and the dashboard is well-designed. We will definitely be using Vestd to manage our EMI option scheme going forward too. Overall, I would 100% recommend it to other founders.
