Enterprise Management Incentive Schemes

Here at Hartley Fowler, we offer a range of support with employee share scheme services.

Incentivising key members of the management team is an important part of any growing business, as is the tax efficient structure of new capital. EMI schemes can help small and medium-sized enterprises to attract and retain skilled employees.

Enterprise Management Incentive Schemes (EMI)

An EMI share option scheme can be an effective mechanism for rewarding key members of staff. Employee share schemes provide tax benefits to employers and employees. The value of the shares under the EMI scheme is tax deductible to employers, potentially enabling them to diminish their tax liability.

With EMI share option schemes, employees are typically only taxed when they sell their shares. This means that they may be able to strategically reduce their Capital Gains Tax liability over time.

We can provide expert advice on:

  • EMI scheme rules
  • Share valuation
  • Complying with HMRC annual reporting requirements
  • Ongoing EMI share option scheme administration
