EMI share options for owner managed businesses
Finding ways to retain key employees can be difficult, particularly for smaller companies who may not have the resources to pay top of market rate salaries. For these employees who are integral to the business, granting an EMI share option can be a good solution to motivate and help retain talent.
Business owners considering granting EMI options should take time to understand the risks involved in granting options and bringing an employee on board as a shareholder. It is vital to ensure appropriate documentation is in place to protect the company should the employee leave as well as to ensure the options attract EMI status for tax purposes.
