Share schemes can provide an extremely tax efficient method of incentivising and rewarding staff in the right circumstances through the grant and exercise of share options and subsequent sale of the shares.

Both the employees and the company can benefit from tax savings provided the share scheme is prepared and implemented in the correct way.

Geldards’ tax team works closely with our Corporate lawyers to ensure that the share scheme fits within the overall structure of the company and meets the objectives of the client concerning any future sale of the company (and realisation of the value from the shares).

Geldards Guides to share options provide further information on some of the different arrangements that are available. Visit our publications area by clicking here to download your copy.
