Employee Share Schemes reward the loyalty and hard work of your staff. The right scheme can also attract and help staff retention. As an employer, if you offer your staff shares as part of a tax advantaged scheme, your employees can save NI or income tax on their value.
HMRC statistics suggest around 85% of all employee share schemes are Enterprise Management Incentive (EMI) share option schemes, and this figure is only increasing. The EMI scheme delivers significant benefits to employees and the business owners so normally is you qualify for EMI you should look nowhere else.
There are other tax advantaged schemes, both all employee and discretionary but none provide all the same benefits as EMI. We have great experience in implementing these schemes, making it easy to understand for both the employees and the existing shareholders, in a cost efficient manner.
It is important that the right scheme is chosen to really maximise the benefits for all often with no additional outlay for your business. The Elman Wall Tax Team are fully up to date with all of these schemes and are happy to advise you as to which one would best suit you.
