Share Incentive Schemes & Share Options
Setting up a share incentive scheme, and/or granting key employees share options, so that your employees can acquire a stake in your business, should have multiple benefits.
The most obvious attraction is that ‘approved’ share schemes are tax effective but, perhaps even more importantly, share schemes also help to incentivise performance and improve staff retention, thus helping a business to improve its management and long term profitability.
There are 5 main types of HMRC ‘approved schemes’ to consider, 3 of which entail the granting of ‘options’ to acquire shares, with the other 2 involving the immediate transfer of shares.
