Frequently asked questions
What if I don’t want to be trapped in a long term subscription?
Buy a short term subscription instead! You can choose to pay monthly or annually.
What if I want to stop my subscription but still have share agreements that haven’t vested?
If during the vesting period of a share agreement you no longer wish to use Vestd we make it easy to leave. If it’s an option scheme we simply help you export your documents and details. If you’ve been using growth shares, you would forgo the ability to cancel these shares at a later date, as the conditional structure Vestd provides can only be facilitated while the shares are on the platform.
Why do you operate a subscription model?
Keeping your share scheme legally compliant is so much more than the initial agreement. That’s why many schemes aren’t compliant on exit. Vestd is here for the lifetime of your scheme and we keep you and your team on the right track every step of the way with unlimited access to our expert team. From companies house updates to HMRC submissions to compliantly adding new and removing old people from your scheme. Not to mention the ongoing vesting and then exercising of options.
We find that over the lifetime of a scheme, Vestd ends up being thousands of pounds cheaper for our customers than alternative routes.
We needed a solution that had the right balance of speed, quality and affordability. Vestd excelled for us on all three. The level of service was far beyond what you’d expect from a software product.
