Employee share plans

We advise employers on the implementation of a whole range of employee share and option arrangements, from formalised plans to a one-off award for a key employee. Our experience in this field over many years means that we can ensure our clients design and implement the right share plan for their business. 

We advise a number of listed companies, from FTSE 100 through to AIM and also work with limited companies of all size, from start-ups to multinationals. We have extensive experience of extending share plans into the US and Europe. 

We regularly advise on the implementation of HMRC self certified and tax efficient share plans such as Enterprise Management Incentives, CSOP, Share Incentive Plans and Save As You Earn plans. In addition, we implement a range of bespoke solutions including growth share plans, deferred bonus plans, joint ownership arrangements, nil paid share plans and advise regularly on employer shareholder status.

Share plans can be a valuable tool for all employers, but we understand that different businesses may have different priorities and appetites. Our team provides clear commercial advice and works with clients to ensure that the right employee share plan is implemented in the right way.
