Employee Share Schemes

What are the key business benefits of employee share schemes?

The main benefits are financial and motivational:

Tax and NIC savings. Some types of share scheme attract particular income tax and national insurance contributions (NICs) advantages that can help reduce a business’s employment costs. Corporation tax relief may also be available.
Employee retention. They can help the recruitment, retention and motivation of high-calibre staff, and the alignment of shareholder and employee interests.
Conserving cash. There may be less pressure on salaries if a business offers a share plan.
They provide incentives for employees to meet key business and financial targets.
Succession planning. Ownership of a business can be gradually transferred to its employees, rather than to new outside shareholders, through awards made under employee share and share option plans.
