Digitise your company share scheme
As the team grows it becomes increasingly difficult to manage your share scheme. Manual admin always sucks, and spreadsheets are no place for this kind of activity.
Vestd makes life so much easier for busy CEOs and FDs. Wave goodbye to hassle and risk.
The only full service digital platform
There are other digital platforms but none of them have the expert support, the full Companies House integration, nor the FCA regulation.
Expert guidance, on tap, from startup to sale
Vestd is more than a platform: our team of share scheme experts makes us unique.
Don’t lose sleep over forms and deadlines
We won’t miss a beat with those important notifications and submissions.
Access for your accountants and lawyers
Invite your professional services advisors to Vestd. Store key docs in your secure vault.
Use your own docs (or ours, if you prefer)
We have standard templates but use your own if they’ve already been prepared.
Ongoing, defensible valuations
Valuations are included and conducted by our in-house team (on Standard and Pro plans).
Avoid the EMI apocalypse: get a compliance healthcheck
Around half of all existing EMI option schemes are not compliant, for a variety of avoidable reasons. Affected shareholders will be in for a nasty surprise when the business is sold.
Vestd helps you to ensure that your scheme remains HMRC compliant. It could save you millions.
