Employee Share Schemes
Companies are usually owned by their founders or by shareholders who ultimately are financial investors. The common link is that they have key employees who are fundamental to the day to day successful running of these businesses.
Many owners want their key management to be both loyal and help grow the company and be rewarded if the business is sold.
Employee share schemes have the potential to motivate staff by providing long term tax efficient incentives. In some cases existing shareholders may not want to give them actual shares in the company or they may not want them to leave still owning shares in the company so flexibility is crucial.
Employee share schemes have this flexibility. There are a number of schemes available that allow anything from a small group of key individuals to the entire workforce to be offered direct shares or share options/incentives in a tax efficient manner, including one of the most popular Employee share schemes the Enterprise Management Incentive.
For over 14 years, ESS have been designing and implementing tax-efficient approved and unapproved employee share schemes for a wide variety of UK owned businesses and overseas corporations trading in the UK. ESS have extensive experience and expertise in this specialist sector, but above all offer our clients an exceptional level of personal service at transparent costs.
ESS is now part of Elman Wall Chartered Accountants and Tax Advisors and ESS’s share scheme assignments will be led by Russell Eisen, Director of Taxation Services at Employee Share Scheme specialists Elman Wall in London.
