Employment Incentives and Employee Share Schemes

Retaining key employees is critical to the success of most businesses. We understand that, in this climate, many of our clients want advice on a variety of incentives which retain and motivate employees whilst being financially viable for the employer. Our team will always seek to utilise the tax reliefs available, where appropriate.

Employee Share Schemes

The best employee share scheme for you or your business will depend on you and your employees circumstances. By working with you to understand both your business and your goals, our tax team can advise you on the most appropriate employee share scheme whether that is an approved share scheme with tax advantages, such as a:

  • SIP (Share Incentive Plan)
  • EMI (Enterprise Management Incentives)
  • CSOP (Company Share Option Plan)
  • SAYE (Save As You Earn)
  • in some circumstances, an unapproved plan.

We can advise on approved and/or bespoke share schemes, outline when generous tax advantages are available and assist you with designing, drafting and delivering of documentation suitable for your business.

We will also be able to assist with administering the share schemes throughout grant, exercise or some other corporate event. Our tax team pride themselves on ensuring that the incentive advice, for you as the employer or the employee, is easy to understand, with clear guidance and support throughout.

Tax Free and Tax Efficient Benefits for Employees

Incentives do not stop at share schemes. There are a range of tax free and tax efficient benefits which employers can utilise. Amongst other things, our tax team regularly advise on salary sacrifice arrangements.  A salary sacrifice arrangement can be beneficial for school fees, childcare, pension arrangements and more.

Our tax team will work with colleagues to ensure that all employment law, regulatory issues and corporate governance is considered throughout.

Employment incentives can also be key to attracting the best people. If you are an employer and want to attract, retain and motivate your employees or prospective employees, we can help.
