Why set up an EMI scheme?
Build & reward your team.
EMI Options are 'tax-advantaged', meaning once issued your employees won't pay income tax on those shares - making this a lucrative opportunity for your team!
Attract new candidates
The EMI Option Scheme is a fantastic benefit that grants employees company shares at a discounted value, tax free!
Retain & motivate employees
With an EMI Scheme in place, your team will inherit an additional motivation to contribute to the growth and success of your business.
By giving your employees EMI options instead of a higher salary, you optimise your cash flow - which is essential in the early days of business. Additionally, if you issue the options at an additional discounted rate, employers have the possibility to receive Corporation Tax Relief.
