What is an Employee Share Scheme?

An Employee Share Scheme is a Shares Option Plan provided by companies to their employees. With an Employee Share Scheme, the employer can give an employee an ownership share in the company, otherwise known as equity. This ownership interest can either be in the form of shares or entitlements to shares, sometimes referred to as options.

It is not uncommon for company owners to encourage new employees to participate in an Employee Share Scheme that offers Employee Share Scheme Interests at a discounted rate. There are a number of different schemes and each will have its own taxation consequences. Employers may offer, and employees may take part in, more than one scheme.

For more information on the eligibility criteria for start-up concessions, the various tax point changes, and the different Employee Share Scheme options now available to eligible start-ups, get in touch with LegalVision today.
