Employee equity schemes can provide an effective means of attracting, retaining and incentivising key staff. However, structuring these schemes can be complicated as there is a range of ways to structure a scheme, and a range of legal, tax and commercial factors to consider when designing a scheme.

This webinar will take a practical approach that is aimed at ensuring that you are able to provide your clients with robust advice specific to their circumstances.

The webinar will include:

  •  An overview of equity, option and phantom schemes and what to consider when choosing an appropriate scheme
  • Regulatory and legal issues impacting employee equity schemes
  • The tax implications of each type of scheme, including an overview of recent tax changes
  • The commercial drivers and evolving market practices in this area.

An employee share scheme (ESS) is an arrangement between a company and its employees that is designed to give employees an equity stake in the company.

This paper will consider:

  • key scheme design considerations and the various types of scheme (shares, options and “phantom” schemes);
  • key commercial parameters for the scheme (eg pool size, vesting, exercise period, exercise price and leaver provisions);
  • legal compliance matters under company and securities law etc; and
  • the material income tax consequences that arise from various schemes for a company and employees.
