Which employee share scheme is right for my business?

Employee engagement is a much discussed topic in the business community for a good reason. Your employees are the lifeblood of your business and losing key employees or not attracting new talent can cause significant disruption and financial loss.

There are many ways to incentivise management and employees and the best way will depend on your business. Our hub looks at some of the different share schemes you can implement within your own organisation.

Enterprise Management Incentives (EMI)

Enterprise Management Incentive share options are an incredibly effective way to motivate, retain and reward your team. 

Company Share Ownership Plan (CSOP)

Granting share options under a Company Share Ownership Plan is a way for companies to recruit & retain staff by providing them with an equity-based incentive.

Alternatives to HMRC Incentives 

Unapproved employee share incentives may be suitable for companies that do not satisfy the various conditions needed to provide incentives under HMRC approved arrangements.  

Employee Ownership Trusts

Employee Ownership Trusts allow a business owner to pass on their business to their employees as a legacy of future employment, alongside some attractive financial benefits. 

Save As You Earn (SAYE)

A Save As You Earn (SAYE) Scheme is a savings-related share option scheme. Employees are given ‘share options’ through which they can buy the shares.

Share Incentive Plans (SIP)

Share Incentive Plans (SIPs) are tax and National Insurance contributions (NIC) advantaged plans that help employers encourage employees to hold shares in the company they work for.
