Advice on a wide range of short-term and long-term employee incentives

Incentive schemes to deliver on your long-term objectives

Our Corporate team advise on a wide range of short term and long term, HMRC approved and unapproved, employee incentives.

We take the time to understand clients’ strategies so as to enable us to structure schemes which will deliver on the long term commercial objectives.

Employee share schemes can be a great way to incentivise and retain talent within an organisation, often in a tax efficient manner. As part of the implementation strategy, we advise clients on the different incentive schemes available, the structure and performance triggers together with any amendments required to constitutional documents.

We work closely and collaboratively with clients’ tax advisers in relation to any advance clearances or post-completion reporting requirements to ensure an effective and compliant scheme or plan.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Enterprise management incentive (EMI) schemes
  • Company share option plans (CSOPs)
  • Growth share schemes
  • Phantom share option schemes
  • Bonus arrangements
