Whether you’re a startup aiming to attract and retain talent or an established enterprise seeking to align employee interests with company success, our Share Scheme services cater to your specific needs.


Tailored for small to medium-sized enterprises, EMI schemes offer a tax-efficient way to reward key employees and align their interests with the company’s growth.

Ideal for larger entities who don’t qualify for the EMI scheme. They help to retain key staff as the employee must hold the shares for at least three years to avoid income tax on any gains.

The schemes are more flexible as no HMRC approvals are required when choosing qualifying employees or the value of the shares they receive. They are, however, typically less tax-efficient.
