Build the best team, reward performance and protect your business
It’s increasingly popular for UK startups to reward employees with share options. For founders, it’s a cost-effective way to attract talent, top up salaries and incentivise peak performance. For employees, they get a real stake in your company’s growth and success.
But it’s a tricky balance for founders. How do you avoid granting too much equity or giving it away without getting value in return? You don’t want to lose control of your company or make it harder to get investment.
That’s where a share option scheme comes in. When you design your own option scheme, you can set the parameters and customise the terms to fit your company exactly. Plus, there are incredible tax advantages for you and your employees with an EMI option scheme.
Win-win schemes for exceptional teams
Employee share option schemes are a powerful tool for attracting talent and keeping your team on board and working hard.
