- START UP SHARE SCHEMES - Legal 101

Stone & Chalk Entrepreneurship Series kicked off with Startup Maths last month and continues this month with Startup Share Schemes - Legal 101.

Over the years, we have learnt where entrepreneurs need support. This series of events will provide access to expert advisors to help entrepreneurs on their growth journey. It is designed to bring practical content and real world experience.

Are you a Startup or Scaleup looking for clarity on how to set up your business structure? How to arrange sweat equity agreements without impacting cash flow? Arrange an employee share scheme or shareholder agreements?

Whether you are a serial entrepreneur or a budding startup - join Anthony Bradica from Hall & Wilcox at Lot Fourteen on 26th September to find the answers to these questions and more.

Anthony Bradica is a Partner at Hall & Wilcox, one of our corporate partners.

Where: Mural Room

Time: 5.30pm to 7.00pm

Description:

An employee share (or option) scheme (ESS) provides an opportunity for employees to acquire equity in the company they work for. Employee share schemes can benefit employees financially if the company performs well and are often used as a way of attracting, retaining and motivating staff. An ESS may benefit the company as it can also align the employees’ interests with shareholders’ interests.

The ESS tax rules have recently changed to make equity far more tax effective for employees’ of start-up companies, however there are strict rules that define which companies can qualify as a start-up, which we’ll dive into during this workshop.

We’ll discuss the tax obligations for both the start-up, and the employee, the advantages and disadvantages of offering an ESS. We’ll look at options including vesting, how to value your shares and things that need to be considered when an employee wants to sell their shares, or leaves the company
