Employee Incentives (including Share Schemes)

Employee Incentives (including Share Schemes) Solicitors in London and Essex

Rewarding and incentivising key employees or managers can play a significant part in a company’s growth and success. Employee share incentives is an effective way to boost employee engagement and retention.

If you are thinking about granting share-based incentives to employees, it is important to obtain specialist advice as this is a complex area. 

We advise on a range of share-based incentives including employee management incentive (EMI) option schemes. An EMI scheme is an approved employee share scheme that is available to qualifying companies, allowing share options to be granted to certain employees in a tax-efficient way.

If a company does not qualify for an approved employee share scheme (such as EMI), there remains the possibility of granting share options that are not tax-advantaged. Such options do not have any specific legal requirements.

Although the tax implications of any share scheme are a key issue, we will prepare and advise you on the suite of legal documents and key practical points of which you should be aware, to obtain the necessary legal protections and to maximise the success of the scheme.

Our unique selling point is that we understand what clients want from their lawyers. We will manage your case proactively, with careful attention to detail while never losing sight of the bigger picture.

While working with us you will have access to our strong network of other professionals such as accountants, independent financial advisers and bankers.
