Employee Share Schemes

Employee share schemes are a popular way for companies to attract, motivate, retain and reward their key employees. In addition the Government recently introduced tax efficient all employee share schemes to encourage employee share ownership and high employee engagement, offering very generous tax breaks associated with giving up certain employee rights. Share awards can be very generous, but too many times we see employees struggling to understand their associated tax liabilities and reporting obligations, simply because of the complexities involved, particularly if they have worked overseas.

Largely share awards will fall into two camps, those that are tax and NIC favourable, and those that aren’t. Where employees receive shares from either or both, it makes little difference in terms of this still being a highly complex source of income and gains when it comes to calculating the potential tax position on award, vesting or sale.

We’ll ensure that you have clarity and confidence in terms of being able to correctly report share transactions or mitigate the tax due on future sales of shares, both in the UK and overseas.
