All About Share Options

Dear Bootlawyers,

Share plans. Getting these right can motivate your partners / employees to take your business to new heights. Get them wrong and you’ll have a poorly incentivised team running for the door! When it comes to share plans, one size does not fit all. Did you know that share plans come in many different guises – long-term incentive plan, share-as-you-earn, company share option plan, deferred share bonus plan.......the list goes on. Need some help to navigate this maze?

Enter the Pinsent Masons share plan specialists. On Thursday, 26 June 2014, we're going to be talking about all things to do with issuing shares or share options to your employees, advisors, contractors or new business partner - basically anyone except an investor.

Our share plans and incentives team has advised many start-ups (and a few Bootlaw regulars) on setting up tax efficient share schemes. Specifically, we’ll be discussing:

- using shares -v- share options as an incentive;

- comparing shares -v- share options;

- tax advantaged share options (EMI);

- corporate law considerations of using either shares or share plans 

Please RSVP here (or via


The format of the evening will be, as usual:

6.30pm – Doors open, beer and networking

7:00pm – Legal bit starts.

8:00pm – Legal bit ends; more beer, pizza and networking.

9:00pm – End

    Great content - just the tax part was rather complex (not the speaker's fault but the government's doing obviously)
